Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder shrouded by an unfair stigma and cultural stereotypes. Although schizophrenia affects less than 1% of the population in the US, misrepresentation in movies and TV, along with the sheer amount of false information online, have diluted the facts about this chronic mental disorder. For those who don’t know any better, hearing the word ‘schizophrenia‘ brings to mind an incurable condition with the only treatment being an isolated life sentence in a mental institution. This unfounded stigma could not be farther from the truth.
