Oprah Follows Up on 7-Year-Old Schizophrenic

KobreGuide originally showcased the Los Angeles Times' heartbreaking video story, A Place for Jani, about a family struggling with the extreme challenges of raising a spirited daughter, then 6, with severe schizophrenia.

In July, we noted that the L.A. Times had updated the story, but lamented that it was only a text report, and not a followup video.

Oprah Winfrey picked up on the story and traveled to California to meet Jani Schofield, now 7, and her family for a remarkable show that aired this week, which you can now view online.

I had schizophrenia too 16 years ago when I was in California, and I was confined in Las Encinas Hospital, CA. I posted a message to Oprah @

Schizophrenia is curable, and my website gives more information about it.
