Pets For Companionship & Therapy

Pets can be a great comfort for those of us with schizophrenia. I know that for me, my cats are like family members! Not only do they provide much-needed companionship, but they can also take your mind off of things that you are worrying about and even aid in alleviating anxiety. If you live in a group home, perhaps you could have a small pet like a fish or a hamster. Whatever you do, think about the responsibility that comes along with caring for a pet, but if you are able to handle taking care of another being, you will find it very rewarding!
