#14237/0635  HAYWIRE: Children Living with Schizophrenia
This ABC News program goes inside the homes of children living with severe mental illness, sharing the stories of three young girls whose schizophrenia commands them to harm themselves - or their younger siblings. Their parents' video diaries document the challenges, breakdowns, and frustrations that occur as they seek help for their children and relief for the rest of the family. Brutally honest and emotionally charged, Haywire sheds light on a disorder that is often misdiagnosed and misunderstood.

The symptoms of schizophrenia, beyond delusions and hallucinations, include a range of cognitive and social deficits which affect memory, decision-making, attention, and social cognition. These problems are not helped by current antipsychotic drugs, and psychotherapeutic measures are only of limited benefit. For the past 10 years, Sophia Vinogradov has focused on the design, implementation, and evaluation of neuroscience-informed computerized exercises to improve these undervalued symptoms - with life-changing implications for patients. *CC
