Schizophrenia, Psychotic Episode, Auditory Hallucination without Paranoia

While Chase talks to the interviewer he occasionally bursts out laughing and smiling.  When asked why he’s laughing and smiling Chase says it’s because of his “fans” who are telling him he’s doing a good job.  Chase’s enjoys the voices as they cheer him on and say things like “you can do it,” and “put your mind to it.”  The voices encourage Chase to play his music, saying he could be Metallica and “he’s right on beat.”  Chase loves the voices, his fans, which are around when he plays his music, when he talks to people, help him.
