Split mind, not split personality. The mental illness known as Schizophrenia has been a dark specter in the realm of insanity for a thousand years. It's been mislabeled, misrepresented, poorly depicted and poorly misunderstood. Until this year I had worked in the field of mental health for my entire adult life. I've interviewed countless people who have been in the grips of psychosis and ones that had started to crawl out, only to fall back in. I can't define schizophrenia myself but I can try my best to bring that specter of awareness into the light.
