You can share your story here. Sometimes it can help to write stories down and share them. Writing your story can sometimes help with difficult emotions, and it will also help other people going through the same thing to get a true picture of mental health and psychosis, things that are helpful for friends and family, how to get the best support from mental health services and how to get on with life.

You don’t have to say who you are or share a picture unless you want to. If you put something up and then change your mind, you can contact us and we’ll remove it.

If psychosis has affected your life and you want to share your story then why not write about it, add a photo if you want to or upload a video, here. Telling you story might help someone else as long as you remember to:

Keep it honest

Keep it short

Keep it clean*

Try to end with something positive, to give hope.

Not sure where to start or what to say? You may want to use these tips:

  • What was going on for you and your friend or relative at the time?

  • How did your friend or relatives mental health affect you and your family or friends?

  • How did you respond?

  • What didn’t help?

  • What did help?

* don’t use offensive language or images as we won’t be able to share this with others
