Schizophrenia Memes

For the purposes of this blog post, a meme (sounds like it rhymes with cream) is simply, a humorous picture. There are many different types of meme, and also different meanings to the word 'meme', but for this blog post, it is just a (hopefully) funny picture!

This is the original meme I created around schizophrenia in March about societal beliefs around schizophrenia compared to the actual reality of it:

Morpheus (from The Matrix films) saying the myth that all people with schizophrenia are dangerous is false:

Has anyone else felt puzzled by this?

Condescending Wonka tells it how it is:

It's tough when you have a bright future and your scumbag genes wreck everything:

Or when you're trying to sleep and your scumbag brain keeps you awake:

More medication problems:

The lucky few with medication success:

And a common worry with schizophrenia:

Anyone else think their psychiatrist feels like this when they prescribe your meds?

And last of all, the Actual Advice Mallard gives advice for those struggling with side effects:

If you have another meme about schizophrenia or other mental health issues that you want me to add, let me know!


  1. These are all fabulous! It's so important to look for humour in most situations. Well done. :)

  2. I like that the first one has a female. Thank you!

  3. Loved the meme about medication causing the side effects its prescribed to baffles me so much!! "Hmm, so you're suffering with depression and severe anxiety...take these pills which can cause side effects such as depression and severe anxiety..."

  4. Anyone else seen Lapland's first line of treatment? Open dialogue. EIIP please take heed.
