Famous People With Schizophrenia - Celebrities have Schizophrenia

When we talk of famous people with schizophrenia, John Nash, the American economist, mathematician and Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences who was the subject of the biographical drama ‘A Beautiful Mind’ is probably the first name that comes to our minds. Schizophrenia is a mental disorder characterized by abnormal social behavior due to which living a normal life becomes a challenge for those suffering from it. However, cases like those of John Nash provide inspiration to the sufferers and families that it is possible for such people to thrive and even achieve great success in life. American composer and jazz trumpeter Tom Harrell has struggled with schizophrenia for several years yet he went on to record on over 260 albums and has won multiple Trumpeter of the Year awards from different sources. Yet another notable personality who was schizophrenic was Eduard Einstein - son of famous physicist Albert Einstein. While it is true that being schizophrenic poses considerable challenges to an individual and might hamper their normal day-to-day life, the condition need not prevent the patient from living a fulfilling and successful life. This section provides you information about the life and works of famous people with schizophrenia.
