Schizophrenia videos online

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.

I welcome comments from all readers and encourage you to leave them! Please do. However, due to spam, I review each comment before it can be posted, so it may take 24-48 hours before your comment appears on the blog. Please be patient. I post comments that are not spam.Note: my definition of "spam" includes ALL links to sites claiming to cure or provide "the solution" for incurable diseases such as Schizoaffective Disorder and Schizophrenia. Vulnerable people come to my blog, and I will not let them be preyed upon, but people who post snake oil remedies on the internets. Take your garbage and peddle it elsewhere. Since Blogger doesn't weed all that garbage out, I've been doing it myself for years.
