Schizotypal personality disorder
Schizotypal personality disorder is a mental health condition in which a person has trouble with relationships and disturbances in thought patterns, appearance, and behaviour.

Causes,
The exact cause is unknown. Genes are thought to be involved, because this condition is more common in relatives of schizophrenics.
Schizotypal personality disorder should not be confused with schizophrenia. People with schizotypal personality disorder can have odd beliefs and behaviours, but they are not disconnected from reality and usually do not hallucinate.
Hallucinations, delusions - fixed, false beliefs, and loss of touch with reality are hallmarks of psychosis. People with schizotypal personality disorder do not usually have psychotic symptoms.

Symptoms
  • People with schizotypal personality disorder may be very disturbed. Their odd behaviour  may look like that of people with schizophrenia. For example, they may also have unusual preoccupations and fears, such as fears of being monitored by government agencies.
  • More commonly, however, people with schizotypal personality disorder behave oddly and have unusual beliefs such as aliens. They cling to these beliefs so strongly that it prevents them from having relationships.
  • People with schizotypal personality disorder feel upset by their difficulty in forming and keeping close relationships. This is different from people with schizoid personality disorder, who do not want to form relationships.

Treatment
First, people with these disorders usually do not seek treatment on their own. They tend to seek help once their behavior has caused severe problems in their relationships or work, or when they are diagnosed with another psychiatric problem, such as a mood or substance abuse disorder. In some cases, medications can be a useful addition to therapy.

Although personality disorders take time to treat, there is increasing evidence that certain forms of Talk therapy, Psychological Counseling, Psychotherapy can help many people.
