Isolation, excessive work and remote study, as well as the fear of contracting the disease have caused many people to face high levels of anxiety, stress and depression. And the best way to deal with these illnesses is to seek help.

However, over time, Nash, known for his eccentric temperament, began to suffer from hallucinations, sudden fears, and reported being chased by extraterrestrials or foreign spies. After experiencing years of emotional instability in the company of his wife, Alicia (Jennifer Connelly) and, consequently, professional, he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, depression and low self-esteem in the late 1950s, and was treated with electroshock and medication.

Nash spent almost 20 years alternating between psychiatric institutions, until he managed, little by little, to regain his normal life and be recognized for his achievements as a mathematician. He received a Nobel Prize in his field in 1994, which celebrated his achievements and research.
