“Schizo” aims to end stigma towards people with schizophrenia

Bringchange2mind.org has released a new PSA, provocatively titled “Schizo,” focusing on misconceptions towards people with schizophrenia. The brief film plays on common yet ill-founded stereotypes to reveal the reality that people with schizophrenia are fully capable of living ordinary and successful lives. Watch the PSA and the following behind-the-scenes video below to meet Calen and his wife and begin ending social stigma now.

This video may begin with a commercial which was not chosen by or for the benefit of DisAbility Rights Galaxy.
