If there's a girl who carries on a conversation with herself, just standing there, talking as two people, would that be considered a type of schizophrenia?
Assuming that the person isn't having some type of reaction to drugs, then she might possibly be schizophrenic. However, merely having hallucinations doesn't mean she is; someone with a very high fever or a urinary tract infection will also often times have hallucinations. There are 5 types of schizophrenia; two of these (undifferentiated and disorganized) have hallucinations as symptoms. The best way two help this person is to have them seen by a doctor, who can then diagnose them and set up a medication regimen for them. Hope this helps.
