Schizophrenic Episode Simulation (Janssen’s Mindstorm)

This video is designed by Janssen, a pharmaceutical company.

It is intended to bring more awareness to the mental condition of schizophrenia by allowing viewers to walk in the shoes of a schizophrenic person. This is a type of schizophrenia called paranoid schizophrenia and it is b/c this person neglected to take their medicine that the hallucinations are rather extreme, yet still accurately represented. I felt it would be beneficial to bring even greater awareness to this condition by putting the video on youtube. I hope you all enjoy it and learn something from it.

*Warning This video may be disturbing to some so if you feel any anxiety while watching it then stop watching it!*

Duration : 0:6:36

    This was a very accurate interpretation of the illness. The distant and pulling thoughts… the feeling of tension in the chest… the way paranoya is created and seems logical.

    Oh ok, thanks I am interested because I have weird thoughts and I talk to myself a lot in my mind, it is anoying cause I stay restless, but I guess it is because I am 15 and it is typical for my age. I dont think I have this disorder anymore.

    Hey, I will do my best to answer your questions.
    1. The voices on the television are real; however, when they begin to sound rude or condescending, that is an auditory hallucination/not real.
    2. The woman is real. I think that she is somewhat of a comforting presence to the individual with schizophrenia, which is why things seem to become more “cheery” when she comes home.
    3. I wouldn’t say people are “ok”, but taking their medication definitely lessens/eliminates their paranoia/hallucinations.

    I have a couple of questions.
    are the voices on the TV his imagination or it is really what is going on?
    is the woman his imagination or real?
    and one final one are the people with schizofrenia OK when they take their medicine?

    I didn’t even make it past the first part with the voices. I started having a panic attack….phhhhh…I’m gonna try it again….

    I know right, I can’t even begin to comprehend how I would feel going through that. Thank God we can stop the video at any time…

    The pizza man part . . .the interaction with someone while having thoughts/voices in your head is very disturbing and distracting
