Schizophrenia is often misunderstood and misrepresented by people, so we wanted to do something that captured a number of different symptoms to avoid making people think that everyone with schizophrenia presents with the same symptoms.

    Thanks for the comment gwynedd. I had the same concern when I was taking it. In my mind, it shows one person experiencing many symptoms, but I can certainly see how it could be interpreted as DID.

    Dave, I had hoped that people were at least a tiny bit aware of the difference. I found your image by doing a flickr search on the word schizophrenia. The vast majority of images that came up were about
    "split personality". That fueled my concern with this image. Try the search – you’ll see what I mean.

    Keep up the good work.
