Schizophrenic Episode Simulation
You are about to experience a brief simulation of a psychotic episode in a person with schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia can provide powerful experiences, especially for those undiagnosed or not being treated effectively enough. The symptoms you will experience represent a compilation of a range of sensory occurrence's, as reported by actual patients.
This experience is intended to heighten your awareness of the conditions affecting breakthrough symptoms in patients with schizophrenia who may be in need of efficacious treatments.
It is not meant to suggest that all of the symptoms depicted here are displayed by all schizophrenics.
There is no typical case of schizophrenia.
