One in a hundred people are diagnosed with schizophrenia nowadays. However, negative and stigmatic stereotypes about this mental illness are constantly present in social judgment. The aim of this project is to present schizophrenia in a precise and comprehensive manner by referring to psychodiagnostics basics and making use of visual arts. The author presents the ideas and creative processes of two artists who suffer from this disease. All the graphical details of the book reflect the characteristics of schizophrenia and make the readers interact with various types of print and materials used in the publication. By getting familiar with the illness and expanding their knowledge about it, they have a chance to get rid of their prejudice.
