What do you think about Psychosis and what does it mean to you?
For years the general public has been fed a negative view of psychosis and other mental health difficulties. This is usually thanks to language and imagery conjured by the media, be it advertising, articles or TV.
These societal misrepresentations result in individuals who experience mental health difficulties being stereotyped and often discriminated against.
But when it’s you, a loved one or a friend who starts to experience psychosis; what happens then?
It’s well known that the stigma surrounding mental health can pose barriers to recovery; such as individuals feeling less likely to seek help for a difficulty, an absence of hope or reduce beliefs that recovery is possible.
