Mental Health Awareness Week - Working with Voices and Psychosis

Working with Voices and Psychosis
Found in: Events / Nationwide
People who hear voices and have other unusual realities continue to be diagnosed with schizophrenia-based ‘disorders’ and offered or made to accept medication and hospitalisation. However, the recovery rate for people offered these primary interventions in the ‘developed’ world is low, stigma remains high, and little or no emphasis is placed on individuals’ life experiences and resilience in overcoming adversity and crisis.
