I recently saw a documentary feature called My Name is Alan and I Paint Pictures about a schizophrenic man named Alan who has been spending his life trying to understand and use the things he sees and hears from schizophernia in the form of street Art. The film, which is really wonderful, tells us about his upbrining in England and how schizophrenia shaped who he is and how his art, mostly done on the streets of New York City, has become his life work. It is a very well done and engaging film that I think anyone should check out. I think it could be somewhat inspiring to people with schizophrenia or families that struggle with it. Definitely should check it out! I just checked and the website is called mynameisalan.com

I really think people should check this out!
