“Anyone listening to this podcast can go psychotic; it’s part of what it is to be human.”

As you digest this, consider what it might mean for the way we understand and perceive schizophrenia.

If your interest is piqued, delve into the depths of human experience with this thought-provoking episode, where the line between sanity and psychosis blurs. As we explore the intricacies of schizophrenia, we’re joined by Will Hall, a mental health counselor, host of Madness Radio, author of Outside Mental Health: Voices and Visions of Madness, and survivor of schizophrenia.

Hall’s narrative unveils the complexities he faced from childhood to adulthood, including a stint in a psychiatric institute that failed to provide relief and actually exacerbated the issue. However, through organizations and efforts like the Hearing Voices Movement and Mad in America, he found a community advocating for alternatives to conventional treatments, sparking his journey into advocacy, activism, and counseling.

Press play to uncover:

  • The contrasting paradigms of conventional and alternative approaches to schizophrenia, and when the former may worsen rather than alleviate symptoms
  • The dynamics of power struggles between individuals suspected of schizophrenia and their loved ones, as well as strategies for fostering empathetic and meaningful dialogue
  • The significance of recognizing individual differences in mental health treatment and the role of alternative movements in reshaping our approach
