Schizophrenia is a severe, long-term mental health disorder that causes a range of different psychological symptoms.
Described by doctors as a type of psychosis, someone with schizophrenia can sometimes feel unable to distinguish their own thoughts and ideas from that of reality. These symptoms can of course, be very disabling and distressing.
Symptoms of schizophrenia include:
• hallucinations – hearing or seeing things that don’t exist
• delusions – unusual beliefs not based on reality
• muddled thoughts based on hallucinations or delusions
• changes in behaviour
Dr Elena Antonova, Lecturer in Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN) at King’s College London, talks exclusively to comedian and mental health campaigner Professor Ruby Wax in this frank yet funny video about mental health and the role that mindfulness and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) has played in her life.
