Have you seen the following films released by the Time to Change campaign? You can watch both films on YouTube.

1) "schizophrenic man terrifies kids at party"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yLR8HcnMFoM

2) "Schizo the movie"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-JVBO7nLv0&feature=channel

Both are supposed to change people's attitudes by "shocking" them into realisation.

Personally I feel they are wrong. There is also some heated discussion both on YouTube and Facebook. Will be interested to hear what you think.

I did feel the mental health stigma campaign was ignoring schitzoprenia one of the most stigmatising things

I wouldn't have had the courage to appear on film as a schitso, i feel i have enough problems due to it getting out due to me making it a benefit issue

Sometimes i just hope the guy can rely on the police to protect him

The BBC did a half-decent drama series about mental illness some years ago, but I can’t recall the title. The mental health professional who was the chief character himself developed problems, which was a bit clichéd and predictable.
