Experience of Psychosis Project

The aim of the project is for people who have experienced psychosis to come together, have a collective voice and create change.

Service Description

The group decides what it wants to do—it is experience-led—and has a CAPS worker to facilitate the work. the group look to find ways to share this collective voice and have a dialogue with others dealing with psychosis. Whether as a professional, from their own experience or in the community. In the past, this has included a Lothian-wide consultation to gather people’s experiences of psychosis, making a film of some of these experiences, developing and running training sessions for people working in the field and contributing at conferences and policy discussions.
