Bonus Episode - Schizophrenia

August 7, 2017

Bonus Episode on Schizophrenia

I decided to do an episode on schizophrenia because it still seems be misrepresented in the news, social media, movies, t.v. and general public.

Schizophrenia continues to be seen as a violent mental illness that is untreatable.

This is untrue. Hopefully, this episode with extinguish some long held myths about the illness.
