Schizophrenia is and terrible intense mental disorder that can have symptoms ranging from strange behavior to hearing voices and not knowing what is real or just in your head. This unforgiving mental disorder usually isn't alone and is almost always accompanied by anxiety and depression.
Some people who suffer from this disorder have however managed to turn their problems into something less harmful and beautiful. The following pieces of artwork I will include were created by some very amazing strong people who suffer from schizophrenia. Some of these may be a little disturbing to some but these works of art have helped these people visualize the things going on in their minds.
