It sounds like it, but JMS never mentioned any actual diagnosis. BTW, if you haven't seen it yet, there's a *long* interview with JMS at and a link to a clip where he talks about Michael just a short time before he did so at Phoenix Comic-Con. In the clip, the discussion of Michael's illness starts shortly after the 46:00 mark.

Wow, thanks for the link. And, yeah, that makes it sound more like Paranoid Schizophrenia. The fact that he went off the meds and disappeared is also pretty common behavior for people with that disorder. How sad.
