Diagnosed with schizophrenia at 19, threw pot from 6th floor, single mom becomes ambassador

22 Jan 2024

A 49-year-old single mother who suffered from schizophrenia during her days at SP and dropped a flower pot from the 6th floor has now become the ambassador of "Beyond the Label", hoping to break social stereotypes and encourage the public to accept mental health issues. Diagnosed with schizophrenia, she still needs to take medication to maintain emotional stability. When she was interviewed, she admitted that during that period she would talk to herself or move around the living room aimlessly, and sometimes she would even hear "mysterious voices" talking to her. In the past 30 years, she had encountered many challenges due to her condition, and wished to share her experience with others like her.
