Radio Program on Schizophrenia

The public radio program "Speaking of Faith" is currently broadcasting a program called "Room for J: One Family's Struggle with Schizophrenia." J's diagnosis of schizophrenia causes him to believe that he is God. The program host speaks with J's parents and brother, shares excerpts from J's writing, and speaks with other experts about schizophrenia as a biologically-based brain disease.

Delusions are a common positive symptom of schizophrenia, and they can often become intensely religious in nature.

Tune into the program live from July 15-20, 2005 on your local radio station , or listen to a streaming audio file online from the program archives.

Information about this program was sent to us by a schizophrenia.com member, who learned of it from NAMI. Thank you for sharing this information!
