Schizophrenia:The Voices in my Head
A documentary tracking the daily lives, struggles and triumphs of some young Irish people living with schizophrenia.
They speak openly about what it’s like to live with such a severe mental health disorder and struggle with delusional thoughts and the internal voices that are so associated with schizophrenia.
They struggle socially and are prone to anxiety and depression. But the extraordinary thing is how they are managing – to whatever extent – to control the condition rather than let it control them. We will see these young people at their happiest and darkest moments. As one put it – ‘Thirty years ago I would have been locked up, medicated up to my eyeballs and abandoned in some institution, but that is changing’.
