An interesting set of videos about Schizophrenia and Schizoaffective Disorder was put up on the New York Times website. I think they get right to the point in describing the illness. I particularly love the quote by Michael Runningwolf, "I wish I had a t-shirt that said 'We're more afraid of you than you are of us'." How true and poignant a statement!
I think this set of videos are a great tool for educating people about these illnesses, so I passed the link along to a number of people I know in an email today. If you have one of these disorders, or want to know more about them, you may also want to check out this well-written article.
It's rare that I come across accurate portrayals of Schizophrenia in the media, so I wanted to share this information with you.
