How can I cope with hearing voices and other mental health symptoms?
Who should I tell about my experiences with psychosis?
What steps should I take after a mental health crisis?

Experiencing and recovering from psychosis can be isolating, especially if friends and peers can't relate to what you are going through. With testimony from the author's lived experience and using a range of practical therapeutic exercises that draw on ACT, DBT and Recovery-Oriented CBT, this workbook will support and inspire you throughout your recovery, and help you be the best possible advocate for yourself.

With practical guidance on everything from coping with paranoia to dealing with stigma, as well as mindfulness strategies and advice on returning to work or school - this guide is with you every step of the way.
