New film -- Living with Schizophrenia: A Call for Hope and Recovery

I highly recommend this film.

From this website:

This film is dedicated to the approximately two million Americans living with schizophrenia, and to the people supporting them in their journeys of recovery.

"Living with Schizophrenia: A Call for Hope and Recovery" explores the lives of three people living with schizophrenia, a chronic brain disorder that can be severe and disabling and often is misunderstood and stigmatized. The documentary reveals their daily struggles, personal insights about the illness, and paths the mental health recovery process.

These are the stories of hope that aren’t making headlines.

"Living with Schizophrenia" was funded and produced by Janssen Division of Ortho-McNeil-Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The people featured in the film present their own stories and ideas and were not compensated by Janssen to appear in the film. Janssen does not endorse any organization, source of information or project named in the film. Janssen products are not named or promoted in the film.
