Many mental health disorders are unfortunately plagued with misinformation, stereotypes, and stigma.
In recent years, the world has gotten slightly better with speaking out about mental health conditions, but one illness that is often shrouded in secrecy and inaccuracy is schizophrenia.
So, in an effort to help educate people, if you or a loved one has schizophrenia, we would love to hear about your experience.
For example, what were the first symptoms like? Many might assume that full-on hallucinations start right away, but there are actually many ways schizophrenia can present. How did it look for you?
What was the journey like leading to diagnosis and treatment, and how are you doing now?
Or maybe you want to clear up some of the assumptions and depictions of schizophrenia in real life and in TV/movies that bother you.
We’d love to hear whatever you’re comfortable sharing. Let us know what your experience has been in the comments below and you could be featured in an upcoming BuzzFeed Community article.
