The Schizophrenia Oral History Project (TSOHP) is an archive of life stories of persons with schizophrenia. Our narrators are women and men with schizophrenia who are sharing their lives in an effort to increase understanding and reduce stigma related to mental illness. Their stories reveal not only their struggles, but their remarkable courage and resilience, their hopes, dreams and talents, and their concern for others. In addition to documenting their histories, we are sharing their stories in presentations for professionals and the general public.
Our Narrators are all different, with diverse lives, backgrounds, and stories but what is consistent that all of them are human beings who are kind, inspirational, and have a story to tell.
The Schizophrenia Oral History Project (TSOHP) was founded in 2011 by Drs. Lynda Crane and Tracy McDonough, psychologists at Mount St. Joseph University. We became a 501c3 non-profit organization in 2014 and have since expanded our Board of Trustees with additional talented and dedicated individuals.
