This module is about people’s experiences of psychosis. Many of the people we interviewed had, at some point in their lives, received a diagnosis of schizophrenia. However there were a number of people we spoke to who had never received this diagnosis but who had experienced psychosis i.e. hearing or seeing things or holding unusual beliefs which other people don’t see or share. We interviewed 34 people (31 people with direct experience and three carers) about their experiences.
