Mental Illness – A Novel Approach
From the paper:
“Mental illness has been with us since the beginning of time. There are many types of mental illness and they vary in severity and duration. Two of the most misunderstood and often misdiagnosed mental illnesses are Multiple Personality Disorder and Schizophrenia. These disorders are often confused with one another. If we examine the characteristics of each one we will see where their differences are and how they are treated. There are two movies that underscore the ramifications of the disorders and the treatment options of them both.
Sybil and I Never Promised You a Rose Garden are both portrayals of mental illness in women and how that illness affected their lives and families. ”
