• Question: Have you ever come across someone with both schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder, and if so, did the voices change when they became manic, and encouraged them?

      I haven’t studied this specifically but I know that when some people with bipolar disorder experience psychosis, their psychosis can be mood-congruent. That means that during a manic episode, they might have delusions of having superpowers, and in a depressive episode, their hallucinations might be cruel to them.
