As a future occupational therapist, understanding this can help with empathy and awareness, which will help us be able to build therapeutic rapport when working with these clients. Youtube has many videos simulating this experience, which I have attached below.

This video is a clip from 20/20 on ABC. They have created a virtual reality simulation which allows us to see what someone with schizophrenia may see when they hallucinate.
