Mental Health Awareness Month
Bonus fact: The term
psychopath/sociopath are not official terms used in psychology, but even then these terms do not apply to schizophrenics- they’re usually used to refer to Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD). ASPD, like schizophrenia, DID and many other disorders are also highly misunderstood and stigmatized.
EDIT: Fixed some phrasing in the above comment to prevent confusion about what category the three disorders above belong to.

This is part one of hopefully 2(?) more during this month. I welcome input it there’s a specific topic you want to see regarding schizophrenia. I’m by no means an expert, but want to do my best to shed a little light on it.
We uh… might get Sam to help on the next one!
