This was an amazing speech, but i cant stop paying attention to that funny sound after she talks lol, its sorta asmr 😂 im not trying to make fun of her at all, but its just a kinda funny thing i noticed. This has nothing to do with schizophrenia - i know that - but im sure others have noticed this 😂😂

This video astonished me. I cannot imagine what it must be like, seeing these things and having to continue on like nothing is happening. Honestly, I'm realizing that I did have some stigmas around hallucinations, but I'm really glad I know more about this. It must have taken so much emotional strength to admit it, I really admire that.

I love so close to Penn State. This makes me extremely sad and angry that she was put into a POLICE CAR and was escorted by POLICE. That is unnecessary because she is not dangerous. She was sick. You wouldn’t put a person with cancer in that situation, would you? You wouldn’t. Mental health is just as important as being physically sick. Don’t push it into the dark.

Has this woman ever been officially diagnosed with Schizophrenia? She never seems to actually touch base on that. I'm not trying to be so rude as to discredit her experiences, but from my perspective as a current student of abnormal psychology, her story has a few gaps. I grew up in an EE household, and was exposed to Stephen King's It (ABC miniseries) myself. That being said, I've certainly experienced psychological stressors that very well could be compared to a Schizophrenic model, but nothing as severe or cheesily predictable as seeing Tim Curry following me around town. I want to believe this obviously bright young woman's story, since I relate to it on a profoundly personal level. But, fuckin' A, lady. Have some respect yourself. You want everybody to be comfortable saying "I have Schizophrenia"? Well, I want everybody to be down to say, "I doubted Dylan's vast and profoundly objective perspective on the universe, and am destined to live out the rest of my days regretting it." How about, "I have been diagnosed with Schizophrenia." Have you been? I think you're just a very intelligent and creeative girl, who just so happened to have discovered a crazy exploding star, and so decided to cash in on the mental illness mode because it was just the right combination to catapult your psuedo behomian/hipster persona into the stratosphere.. There, I said it. By the way, Lithium is the most common medication perscribed to Schizophrenics. BEEP BEEP.

Seriously i don't know what those parents were doing! Why didn't her mother get her help? It's her daughter for christ sake! Jesus she needed to get help herself alone! I wonder how she must have felt abandoned by her loved ones. Seriously what is family for? What was her mother thinking? Some parents shouldn't have children. Some parents are so selfish it is outrageous.

The lecture mentions "dangerous", and I'd like to ask about that. Because recent campaigns made me feel empathy for the condition, but they didn't address my pragmatic concern: what an hallucinating person might do (even out of the best intentions). Like, I can't imagine what *I would* do if I saw a girl with a knife...what if I was driving & swerved to avoid her? What if I was babysitting & mistaken the kid for an armed intruder? I hope someone might be kind enough to answer, without considering the question offensive. I have nothing but respect for the speaker, her intelligence, courage, generosity. I'd never "judge" schizophrenia just as I'd never judge pneumonia. But if I were to hire, say, a babysitter with an illness (any illness) I'd have to ask & learn more. Asking is better than making a fake PC smile - while keeping all the assumptions/concerns bottled in.

Very engaging and informative. Well Done Cecilia for being one of the many with a mental illness to speak up and educate those who are more fortunate not to to suffer with a mental illness.
Michael Van Der Schyff (4 дня назад)
Beautiful woman and what a speach! Changed my whole idea of what I thought Schizophrenia is. Movies are sometimes very bad for you. And guess what..even for people with Schizophrenia.

Mental illness is the next social frontier. How many years before MI will gain the ground that lgbtq has. The one thing that holds the MI back is the quite often refusal to accept one's illness often manifested by refusal to take medicine and follow treatment regimen. I commend Ms. McGough for her courage and encourage her to keep this threaded through out her message.

It's heartbreaking that her mother did not want her to seek help.

The more I hear about it, the more I think I may have this issue as well. Sometimes I see things there are not there, and also hear those (less frequently). But I kinda know they are all coming from my head. My most frequent vision is seeing things moving when they are not. It looks simple, but try to sleep while everything around you is moving, aproaching or looking at you.
Kikita soyvirgo (5 дней назад)
My husbands brother had it but took his life recently. I wish there was more we could have done for him. I miss him too even though i didnt get to know him too well. Dont be scared of people with mental illness because it could be anyone who gets it. Its not the persons fault for dealing with the illness.

What an amazing insight into what someone with this mental illness has to go through, especially about the girl who would use your insecurities against you I never realised hullicinations could be so intelligent. Thank you for educating me and others on something I don't know loads about You are the sort of role models we should have women whom in spite of the horrific things they have had to face are strong idependent women trying to help educate the world so much respect for you.

great job Cecilia! we all need to be more open about mental health issues and fight the associated stigma. the best way to help others is to be open and honest about our own mental health issues and not hide or be ashamed of seeking help. mental health issues are way more prevalent in society than we realize and respecting our own mental health will empower others to do the same. there is so much more advancement to be had in this area.

Im absolutely happy to hear people like herself stand up for people with schizophrenia. Speaking out about it is definitely curtailed due to the fear of being shunned in society. It will take much longer for people in developing countries as mine to be easily capable of admitting out loud of such mental illnesses. ('_') .its sad.
Adrianna Tran (19 дней назад)

Anjelia Rakic (19 дней назад)
wow. I am so proud of this accomplished young lady for openly talking about schizophrenia and educating other and making a providing support to other suffers. i have bipolar type 2 and i have been told by my doctors not to ever admit this at a job interview cos i will not get the job. And they are right. More education of the general public needs to take place so they can understand mental help.
wind10miko (19 дней назад)
How old is she in this talk? It seems like that college was a long time ago but she looks so young. We need more brave people like her to speak up. I can't imagine what would have happened if she was working for someone versus being the CEO of a company
