I’d like to give a special greeting to the #atozchallenge participants! If you’re unfamiliar with my blog, I reserve Mondays for all things Mental Health. I’m in cahoots with two fabulous bloggers, so I urge you to check out their posts too. 😉
Lydia hosts Medical Mondays on her blog, The Word is My Oyster and Sarah Fine covers various psychological topics on Mondays on her blog, The Strangest Situation. We’re ALWAYS open to your writerly questions and would love to help you out. All you have to do is ask.
Alrighty, so on to today’s letter, “C.”
Capgras Syndrome, simply put, is when someone believes people they know have been “replaced” by identical impostors. It is considered a delusional disorder and most frequently occurs in people who have Schizophrenia. Other conditions, such as dementia or brain injury, can cause the condition.
Characters with Capgras Syndrome have shown up in novels and films and it can certainly create some interesting scenes should you choose to develop a character with the disorder.
