Chapter 4: Schizophrenia Spectrum and Other Psychotic Disorders   

I Am Not A Monster: Schizophrenia | Cecilia McGough | TEDxPSU


In chapter 4, schizophrenia, its symptoms, causes, and possible treatments are discussed. The delusions, hallucinations, and the problems associated with these symptoms alter an individual's social interactions, speech, and everyday behavior. Whereas the disorder is not permanent, it can distort daily functioning, and impair a person's ability to work, interact, and take care of themselves. Cecilia McGough is a Penn State student who has opened up about her experience with schizophrenia and advocated for other students dealing with the disorder. Run Time: 14:40
