Answer 2
May, 2021

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with scientific literature, but I can recommend some non-fiction. The book "Go crazy! A guide to mental disorders for a resident of a big city" by Russian authors D. Varlamova and A. Zainiev. It tells about some of the disorders, how they manifest themselves, as well as a small digression into the history and explanations from the point of view of neurobiology.

I don't think I should mention the documentary about Billy Miligan and Oliver Sachs and his "The Man Who Mistaken His Wife for a Hat"
