Introduction to Psychosis

2 Sessions

The experience of psychosis, for example hearing voices or experiencing altered perception, is surprisingly common. Being diagnosed with psychosis can be a frightening and life-changing event, and there are lots of misconceptions and stigma regarding psychosis which can make coming to terms with it even harder.

This workshop looks at:

  • Treatments of psychosis

  • Personal experiences of psychosis

  • Managing experiences so that you can live your life the way you want to

This course is accompanied well by our Hearing Voices course and support group, reinforcing the fact that you are not alone in your experiences; with peer-support workers helping to lead the courses, you can feel safe in the knowledge that your teachers have lived experience of psychosis and both the challenges that come with it as well as recovery.
