beautifully done :)

My little sister was schizophrenic, and she committed suicide because none of us understood what was happening to her. We couldn't grasp that she was the victim of a disease, and not just a behavioral problem.
I love to see people making the effort to lift the taboo. Thank you.
Would you consider mentioning that there is actual brain degeneration during the course of the disease (up to 25% of the neural tissue over the first 6 years)? Schizophrenic people are honestly not able to conform to social expectations. Period. Their brains are degenerating, and it is terrifying for them.

I'm sorry for you and your sister :/
