In 2009, Oprah met Jani, a 7-year-old girl living with childhood schizophrenia. Jani's hallucinations became so violent that her parents, Michael and Susan Schofield, were forced to live in two different apartments in the same building to keep her baby brother, Bodhi, safe. In 2009, Michael and Susan allowed Oprah Show cameras to follow them over the course of a day, giving Oprah and her audience an exclusive look into their lives and the stress they were coping with daily to keep both their children safe.
