Book highlights experiences of living with psychosis

Mental health service users in Manchester have created a book detailing their experiences, to inspire the recovery of others living with psychosis and raise awareness of the condition.

'Our Lives. Our Voices' features artwork and creative writing by people engaged with Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust's (GMMH) Early Intervention Service (EIS) in an effort to help fellow service users see there is hope in recovery.

The EIS offers assessment and interventions for individuals experiencing a first episode of 'psychosis' which is a condition defined by unusual experiences and sometimes difficulties with reality.
