People with schizophrenia fall victim to severe episodes that force them to lose their grip on reality and enter a dark mental state. To let people in on the devastation that comes along with having schizophrenia, YouTuber Scottie Long decided to film himself in the midst of one of these episodes and share it with his followers.

He hoped that this footage would give people a glimpse into the horror of this debilitating psychological condition.

This is seriously heartbreaking. There's something really brave about his willingness to share his illness with people in the hopes that they'll seek help if they need it. You can't deny that schizophrenia is a truly formidable condition.
