“What Schizophrenia Sounds Like”
For the last couple of weeks I have been looking up information about the mental illness, schizophrenia for a research project for my psychology class. During my research I found an interesting project that some scientists had put together called, “What Schizophrenia Sounds Like.” After interviewing many people with this illness the scientists compiled a short clip of what a schizophrenic might hear during an episode, or just day to day.
I’m learning abnormal psych in my AP psych class and our teacher showed us a few videos showing what you might see and hear if you were schizophrenic. They were from the point of view of someone with schizophrenia. It was terrifying, the constant voices telling you you’re stupid and telling you to kill or hurt yourself, the visual hallucinations of horrible things like your food moving or people with evil faces.
