* In TheOmen remake, Damien shows signs of having [[AmbiguousDisorder some sort of developmental disorder]], and it's bizarre how his modern, 2006 mother automatically subscribes to this trope instead of having him tested. The fact she's right doesn't lessen the unrealistic oddness of her reactions.

* ''{{Kult}}'': Schizophrenia is actually the ability to see behind the veil covering mundane reality. Mental illness in general is one of two roads to supernatural mojo (sainthood is the other one, but power-wise they're mutually exclusive).

* ''Webcomic/LastRes0rt'' has a place on the soul spectrum for Light Children, who are born with just a little more / less soul than the average person (Sterlings). It's not that this causes things like Autism or Schizophrenia -- rather, they happen because the Light Child hasn't been trained properly (compared to the Celeste) to deal with their new powers and sensory abilities. It's implied that with proper training, these individuals can leap right into DisabilitySuperpower territory.
** One of the pages is even titled "[[http://www.lastres0rt.com/2007/11/among-the-blind-the-one-eyed-man-is-insane/ Among the Blind, the One-Eyed Man is Insane]]".

* For much of history, before the advent of modern psychology, many cultures believed that DemonicPossession caused epilepsy and other mental disorders. Though notably, Catholic exorcists didn't believe this and still don't. They ''always'' sent you to a doctor first. If the doctor was bamboozled, or their diagnosis appeared to be wrong or their treatment didn't seem to be working, then they ''might'' consider exorcism.

The book "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Spirit_Catches_You_and_You_Fall_Down The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down]]" chronicles how one Hmong family in California ran into issues with the medical establishment when they attempted to treat their daughter.

* Many of the symptoms of [[DemonicPossession Possession]] in ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings'' and its sequel resemble those of certain real-world mental illnesses like schizophrenia, meaning that it's possible many of these instances are simply [[MaybeMagicMaybeMundane dysfunctional people in a world that views them through a supernatural lens]].
