This course helps you to make sense of what a diagnosis of psychosis involves. We look at the symptoms, causes and impact that psychosis can have on our lives. Early warning signs are considered, alongside a wide variety of approaches and coping strategies. There will be handout information and further links to take home to deepen your understanding and develop your self-management skills. Discussion time is factored in so that you can talk about your individual experiences within the safety and support of the group.
