Edona Dzemaili: On Schizophrenia, Multiple Diagnosis, Inner Conflict and Arts

By mindshare

This is Edona—emerging poet and longtime friend of mindshare through her work with the Mental Health Coalition of SA.

In this video Edona discusses growing up in a bilingual household without a strong understanding of mental health, what that meant when she was diagnosed with schizophrenia, how she found comfort, and where she is at today with her diagnosis and journey.

Mental illness does not define us. Labels do not define us. And with the right support, we can lead really good lives.
