The Dutch Anoiksis Patient Society, funded by the Dutch Mental Health Fund, have released a brand new version of their online Psychosis? Me? booklet. They asked Intervoice to share this with any members that may find it helpful.
This booklet is available in both english and dutch from: www.psychosegevoelig.nl.
It is free of charge for legitimate use.
This brochure was written for and by people who are susceptible to psychosis. Psychosis susceptibility can lead to various diagnoses, such as schizophrenia and schizo-affective disorder.
In this booklet we are looking for the points of contact between the knowledge and experience of experts on the one hand and the experience of people with this susceptibility on the other hand. We approach this every time in the same way: first a personal experience, then observations looking at the root cause and some suggestions of how to deal with difficult situations. The experiences describe situations that people with a susceptibility to psychosis can find themselves facing. You are likely to recognise yourself more in one story than another.
