Prime video is where I found it. It was very good. I was glued to the TV set.

Another good one is called “Shadow Voices “. If you’re not from the U.S. you will most likely be appalled at the treatment of mentally ill people here.

Why do you say , "not from the U.S.?" and where is the "here" that you are referring to? Is it the U.S. because that is where you live?

I’m from the US. The mental healthcare here is pathetic. The documentary Shadow Voices gives a little insight to as to what often happens to people with mental illnesses here in the US.

I think it is important to understand that a delusion is a real experience rather than a reality (which is a relative concept in itself). If you are used to experiences and worlds that are not real, you will be used to questioning everything you see, hear, and think. The doctors call this "insight" and it doesn't mean you are misdiagnosed.

Of course you can question your delusions. That is rational thinking. Sometimes I don't believe in schizophrenia. I think it is easy for people to become confused, deluded, or deceived. We live in a complicated world.
