In brief: No

Schizophrenics are a diverse group of individuals.
There are many types. It is a devastating brain disease. With treatment, some schizophrenics can be quite functional and would exercise good hygiene and self-care. Without treatment, they can be a very dysfunctional group with minimal, if any, social interactions and high rates of suicide.
