This post is a bit off topic for this blog perhaps…its more informational about the history of a prominent individual labeled as “schizophrenic”, John Nash, whose story was portrayed in the movie A Beautiful Mind albeit not an accurate portrayal.
This video is John Nash himself discussing that the story told in the movie was inaccurate and basically a flat out lie as the producers were influenced to portray a politically correct version of so called “mental illness” that presented the view that one must take these drugs “for life”.
John Nash used these drugs only for a brief period during a crisis and then lived the majority of his life without psychotropic drugs.

As always – if you are taking psychotropic drugs NEVER EVER just “go off them”. To do so can be life threatening. For more information and resources on how to safely reduce or withdraw from Psychotropic drugs please visit the resources page here and view the powerpoint presentation here.
