Living with Schizophrenia with António Ferreira

Living with Schizophrenia with António Ferreira

As a teenager, I was diagnosed with, Undifferentiated Schizophrenia and Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder.

I experienced auditory hallucinations, which at the time took over my life.

At the age of 16 I attempted to take my life and was admitted to a mental health ward, where I remained for roughly two years.

However, that experience went on to shape my ambition. Today, I am stronger and much more resilient.

Recovery can vary depending on the individual's willingness to want to get better.

I acknowledge and accept that trials and tribulations make up the journey.

So I'm proud to be a mental health ambassador because "that person who helps others, simply because it should or must be done, and because it is the right thing to do is indeed without a doubt, a real superhero".
