James Lewis's curator insight, February 9, 10:33 AM

This is just a statistical report on the differences in mental illness and percentages on people like suicides, whether or not you have social support groups. Whether or not it is transferred genetically through your reproduction. Whether a family member gets it or basically just a report done from www.schizlife.com  and made a slide showing the different areas of what schizophrenics feel and what they go through and the treatment you get over years does it help, or does it hurt. I know when i first came down with the illness i took alot of pills and over time i went from 155 to about 295. I was excessively fat. I hate taking medicine to this day, but i also realized that i needed to take it regularly or i would end up in a psychotic rage, which i need to express that if i ever go in to a psychotic rage or psychosis, its very scary and you feel like your dying and reality isnt real, and you end up lost. Im not a violent person, but I would love the fact if someone could help me when im in psychosis and that they recognized the episode whenever it happens, cause usually i wont tell anyone i need to go to the hospital, cause after my episode goes away im fine for a couple weeks, but it comes back, and i notice i think its my own mind thinking all this dark and negative thoughts because i been through a lot of things that not very many people go through. Anyhow this is my scoop about mental illness and it may give you an idea of the statistics are in my disease. Thank you for reading my article.

I absolutely love human-interest pieces such as this. As clinicians, we will be attempting to understand all that human individuals undergo, and this experience will be far more rewarding than reading definitions in a text book. Human-interest pieces give us snap-shots of what we could be working with when we delve into the field.

With regards to this story, the subject of art therapy is something fascinating that I know little about. It's impressive that Amanda found healing for herself through her art, and wonderful that her father is finding sanctuary through art therapy as well. From the article, this quote resonated with me the most: "Unfortunately, what we tend to notice are the frightening, negative stories relating to schizophrenia. It's the violent episodes that get the most attention. People with schizophrenia are generally not violent. If they are, it is usually towards themselves." Stereotypes can be more harmful than the actual illness can be.

Particularly moving blog about a mother with Schizophrenia and a woman who reached out to her. This article, along with many others, shows just how helpful having support can be, especially to those diagnosed with Schizophrenia. As Katherine stated, she lost everything due to her mental illness, and while her life has been blessed in certain ways, she still had a rough beginning. It is only through understanding and compassion that we make fear relinquish its hold on us. Knowledge can undermine doubt.

Abigail Black's curator insight, December 9, 2014 3:58 PM

This was a very interesting article about schizophrenia that explored different options and solutions to help people cope and live with the disorder of schizophrenia. It talked about and listed many of the symptoms that are also listed in the text book. (Lilienfeld, 2010) This article talked about how many people with this disorder don't realize that their thinking is abnormal and that they need to help and often times these people abuse street drugs to try and cope with what they are experiencing instead of seeking professional help. The article discussed a study done that showed that talk therapy can significantly help people with schizophrenia. It can help them to get the voices out of their head and have someone to try and make sense of what is going on with them. This also helps them to realize that their thinking isn't normal and talk therapy helps them and improves their symptoms. 

This is a very credible article because it comes from a very credible website with good information. (psychologytoday.com)

This article does account for gender differences because the study that was discussed in the article was performed on men and women.

One small step for man, one giant leap for Schizophrenia. We are on the brink of amazing scientific endeavors, and it's wonderful that the progress scientists are making can positively impact this population. While there isn't one specific gene that accounts for anything, these researchers have narrowed Schizophrenia's cause down to a group of genes that have mutations which have interfered with healthy communications through the brain - How cool is that!!! If we could configure a protein vaccination that allows this group to function typically throughout development, we might see the end of this illness.
