Can you always trust your mind?
Dr Keri WongDr Keri WongHD, subtitles, Q&ATranscript49m
We use our senses to understand the world. But for people with schizophrenia, psychosis means they can't trust their senses or their minds. Why is schizophrenia so misunderstood & stigmatised by society?

If you are like most people, you may have never questioned your senses. But is what we hear and see really there? When an individual cannot tell what is real or not in their life, this can be very scary causing extreme paranoia, which is a key symptom of schizophrenia.

Schizophrenia is one of the most misunderstood and stigmatised mental illnesses today. What are the early signs and can anything be done to detect prevent it. Can someone commit a crime because of their schizophrenia? And how should we as a society deal with it?

In this Garden Talk Dr Keri Wong, Associate Professor of Psychology at University College London and also a criminologist will share her insights on the science behind schizophrenia. What can psychology and neuroscience tell us about its causes and are there ways to intervene or even prevent this disabling condition? She will bust some myths about Schizophrenia and consider 'what happens when you can't trust your thoughts?'.
