Psychiatry, Occultism and Shamanism/Witchcraft and the example of “Schizophrenia”

sleepwalker-psychiatry

I read somewhere that psychiatrists knowledge initially derived from occult sciences. This shows itself especially in the choosing of the word “schizophrenia” for expanded states of consciousness, which means as far as I know “split of soul”, which in turn can be compared to the Peruvian shamanist view of a state of “lost little soul”, where  the patients lost their “little soul” because of accidents or other traumatic incidents. The psychiatrists in the former USSR called “schizophrenia” also the shaman’s disease.
Are so-called “schizophrenics” then shamans or witches who lost their “little soul” and are going, due to their powers, into other realities and search for their “little soul” and because of the combination of their “little soul” being lost and going into other realities are becoming a little “disoriented”?
Did the psychiatrists know of such, because of their connection to occultism, and the occultists inheriting such wisdom from witches, because the witches had to hide from the church (occult meaning hidden), but it was forgotten or not conveyed how to repair such a situation.
