Abstract
This study presents a literature-based survey which aims at exploring the cross cultural perspective on schizophrenia, which entails how people from a given country with specific cultural background look at this condition and other situations that are related to schizophrenia.

This report therefore gives a critical analysis of Schizophrenia and compares different sources of data and reports in relation to the experiences that exist in various countries. It emerges that the perception of schizophrenia still maintains a similar stand in various countries especially in the developing countries and the developed countries. This therefore calls for the need for further research in Schizophrenia. The opening section provides a background understanding of Schizophrenia. The second section illustrates comparative studies of schizophrenia in various countries. In addition, it gives a critical analysis of the condition of schizophrenia. The third section gives a detailed analysis of the methods that the researcher incorporated in order to arrive to the conclusions and recommendations made.
