Talking with a #Schizophrenic Part 1



In this video, I listen to my son with both Autism and Schizophrenia, tell me about a mission he must go on to save the universe. This is typically the nature of his Schizophrenic hallucinations.

This is NOT his imagination. This is how Schizophrenia impacts his life. The purpose of this video is to educate, provide insight and destigmatize mental illness.

It’s important that I be supportive without playing into his hallucinations. It’s a very fine balance. We never challenge his hallucinations because that could prove to be potentially dangerous to us and harmful to him.

When you’re done, Part 2 can be found here.

You’re a wonderful father. Your children are lucky to have you.

This was very hard to watch but it’s his reality and you handle it with great care. I cannot imagine what you and your wife go through every day trying to meet the needs of each of your children while attempting to maintain a sense of your own self.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your life with the world. I admire your commitment to your family and your dedication to their needs.

God bless you, today and always.
