Content-beta requested: portrayal of mental disorder

This is an odd one. I've written a story (fanfiction, for Stargate: Atlantis) in which a character has experienced auditory hallucinations for years and thinks he's schizophrenic.

It's a what-if, a character study, with brief snippets considering various episodes in light of this possibility. Only, the thing is, I'm probably about as neurotypical as they come. I really don't want to fall into ableism-fail.

Is there anyone out there who knows about schizophrenia and/or hallucinatory conditions (more than Wikipedia offers) and would be willing to review this story to (try to) make sure I'm not being offensive or ignorant (or offensively ignorant)? Does anyone know a place where I might find such a reviewer? ([community profile] accessportrayal seems close but not quite right as a forum to pose this request ... but maybe I'm wrong about that.)

The story is ~4400 words. It's not a "fix-it". Knowledge of SGA canon is a definite plus, but I can provide supplementary notes for those who know the content area but not the TV show. It's also pretty rough, and it may not work as a story, at least yet.

If this is something I should just regard as "yay, I wrote something, now never publish it", I'd rather know up-front, you know? Thanks to anyone who considers!
