Here you can read real stories written by young people who have experienced psychosis. Only their names and pictures have been changed.

The stories say something about the experiences people have been through, but they also say what helped, and how things are now. Everyone’s story is different. Sometimes it can help to read other people’s stories. That way, you can see that you’re not alone. You can also see that although at times things can be really difficult, they can also get better.

As well as reading other people’s stories, some people find it helpful to share their own. Writing about your experience can sometimes help you to deal with difficult things and if you post it on the 'forum', you could also get some advice from other people who’ve been through similar things.

If you’ve experienced psychosis, but things have improved for you recently, you can also share your 'recovery story', and tell people what worked for you. This may give some really helpful advice to someone else who’s struggling at the moment.
