Schizophrenia was a serious mental condition. The condition was often incorrectly generalized as being a "split personality" disorder; although one type of ailment can cause split personalities, there are many different types which cause different ailments, including a prolonged catatonic state.

While examining Doctor Simon Van Gelder aboard the USS Enterprise in 2266, Dr. Leonard McCoy performed an electroencephalograph on Van Gelder and managed to rule out schizophrenia as a cause for Van Gelder's madness. (TOS episode & novelization: Dagger of the Mind)

From Wookieepedia, the Star Wars wiki.

Schizophrenia was a severe mental illness characterized by delusions and hallucinations. The hallucinations were often auditory, manifesting as voices. Some schizophrenics would have visual hallucinations, as exemplified by the Aleena Jedi Kazdan Paratus who believed that his junk constructs of the Jedi Council were actual living individuals.[1]

Schizophrenics would sometimes exhibit violent behavior. Victor Jun, an Alliance recruiter, would often act on the orders given to him by the voices in his head, which sometimes involved murder.[2]

The Gand findsman Zuckuss also suffered from this condition.[3]
