This is from an episode of Oprah. I was quite skeptical before seeing this since kids often have imaginary friends. But it seems like this family was quite resistant to treating their daughter Jani, and only started to get help when her hallucinations started to cause her to become violent (at age 5). Jani has already tried to kill herself and harm others. She is on the treatment of last resort for adult schizophrenics!
In part 2, you get to see her psychiatrist describe her schizophrenia.
In part 3, you get to see Jani’s best friend, another young girl suffering with schizophrenia. They met in the psyche ward.
