  1. Fox phobia is the fear of getting rabies. And the fear of getting a mental illness is maniophobia.

    Manic phobia is often a sign of incipient schizophrenia. This disorder often affects relatives of patients with schizophrenia. They know perfectly well that schizophrenia is a hereditary disease, they have experienced all the hardships of life with a sick person, they have seen the development of the disease. And at the slightest symptoms, even the most non-specific (bad mood, anxiety, insomnia, weakness, headaches), they begin to fear that it is schizophrenia that develops (although it can also be depression, neurosis). They start to get nervous, run around for money, psychics, less often-for doctors (as they are afraid of being “registered”). If left untreated, the disease progresses and unfolds in all its glory. As a result, maniophobia either remains a neurosis, or schizophrenia develops. Just like a cough, it can be the beginning of simple bronchitis, or it can also be a sign of incipient tuberculosis or lung cancer.

  2. Nonsense. There is no such diagnosis as maniophobia. Accordingly, there is nothing to stop believing in schizophrenia.

    The fear of getting schizophrenia is a typical companion of a “neurotic” and a person with an anxiety disorder who has encountered some kind of mental pathology. Due to increased anxiety, he tends to wind himself up and invent a bunch of different diseases for himself, although he only has an anxiety disorder. This is neither a sign nor a symptom of schizophrenia.

  3. No, because these diseases are not related and do not pass into each other. Schizophrenia, like the BAR and the BALL, are endogenous diseases, that is, they arise due to internal factors. Fear of going crazy is a common thing in depression, OCD, and other anxiety disorders
