Schizophrenia: Stolen Minds, Stolen Lives

This is the story of a nightmare, a demon that strikes healthy teenagers and young adults, it robs them of past, present, future and even life itself. Schizophrenia is considered to be one of the most complicated and fascinated mental health disorders that people can get, primarily because it is so complex and has such a wide range of symptoms. People who have Schizophrenia tend to hear voices, feel paranoid, have delusions or emotional withdrawal,  etc.

Although often mistaken for it, Schizophrenia is not split personality disorder, it is also not something which is made up in the patients head nor is it the fault of anything they may have done in their life. It is simply a condition which can present itself at an early age and persist for the rest of their lives but we dont know for sure what causes it.

For victims with Schizophrenia everyday life is a strange and terrifying journey, in this film we explore the lives of several people who suffer from Schizophrenia and we learn how it affects them. We also hear from leading scientists in the field.
