Schizophrenia is a very difficult mental disorder. People who suffer from this illness are often unable to make a difference between reality and thoughts, they can hear voices and have hallucinations. If you’ve ever seen the great movie Beautiful mind, it is pretty much clear to you how difficult things can be for people suffering from schizophrenia.

Art is always a good way when it comes to struggling with difficulties in life no matter which form they take. In this case, people who suffer from schizophrenia turned to painting as a medium of expressing their inner conditions. Some of the schizophrenic art pictures painted by mentally ill patients can be disturbing, but art can bring us closer to them and make it easier to understand their everyday struggles. Let’s scroll this unusual gallery for some insights and compassion.
