This Girl With Schizophrenia Draws Her Hallucinations To Cope With It








Kate, an 18-year-old artist from Los Angeles was diagnosed with schizophrenia last year. Instead of letting her mental illness take over her life, she used art to deal with her hallucination.

 "I have always been an ‘artist’, I just didn’t realize what that meant until my mental illness appeared. I despise the term ‘mentally ill’; it implies that who I am as a person is fundamentally corrupted and broken.

Unfortunately, as soon as I tell people what I struggle with, I feel like that’s all they see me as. They see the stigma perpetuated by the media, and the inaccurate stereotypes portrayed in Hollywood. That is precisely why I am so open about what I live with," Kate told Boredpanda.com.

Here are some of her arts on Instagram

  2. My Dad started painting when he had visual hallucinations after quitting a 3 packs of cigarettes per day habit. He did oil paintings of nature. As a shrewd 2nd grader, I'd make a sour cream dip for him before he returned from work and race to the other TV room. He'd gripe about his hallucinations with Mom and drink 2 or 3 whisky sours and return to reality after a couple of hours. This went on for about 4 months. Dad was an early leader in applying calculus to petroleum engineering.
