I Am Not A Monster: Schizophrenia | Cecilia McGough | TEDxPSU

May 25, 2021
There is a charity across America that cares about them and focuses on them. The existence of a public institution focused on mental health in general is also completely insufficient. Because even in this mental health community,

schizophrenia

is shunned because it doesn't make sufferers feel “good.” That is why I decided to create a charity called “Students with Dissociation”, in which we support university students and provide them with all the resources they need so that they can stay in university and succeed in it, because dissociation is not an obstacle. . to achieve success, since you can combine both. We have to change the appearance of this disease, because what we are shown now is completely false.

Don't let anyone tell you that you can't have a mental illness and still be mentally strong. You are strong, brave and warrior. But sadly, for some this charity has come too late. Since coming out with

schizophrenia

, I have been asked to attend several different classes here at Penn State and talk to them about my experience with it. Among those classes, there was one that stood out: at the beginning of the semester, a student talked to her classmates about her schizophrenia. I praised her for her bravery. But when she came to talk to the class, she had committed suicide.

We were too late for that. You arrived too late. Here at Penn State, we must set an example for the world, because this is not just happening here in Pennsylvania, it is happening all over the world. But here at Penn State we need to make it clear that we are here for our students, we are talking about mental health, and we are not afraid to talk about dissociation. I'm Cecilia McGough. I am schizophrenic and I am not a scary

monster
