In this section you can find out about the experience of living with psychosis by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 33 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as childhood, diagnosis, stigma and treatement. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.

You may also be interested in our other mental health sections and our section on young people’s experiences of psychosis.
