MTCT training seminar: Psychosis and psychotic conditions
Wednesday 18th February 2021
Mention the word psychosis to most people and they immediately think of headline grabbing tragedies and untreatable, unmanageable people they'd rather not have anything to do with. This is inevitable given the way that the subject is covered in the press but it's not really very accurate.
People diagnosed with psychosis, like people diagnosed with other mental health problems are more likely to harm themselves than others.
This hour long tutorial lifts the lid on the myths about psychosis and psychotic conditions like schizophrenia. It introduces participants to the practical, common sense things that they can do to support their relatives, their service-users and themselves. By breaking symptoms and problems down into manageable 'chunks' and by relating them to participants' own experiences we build a clear understanding of what psychosis and schizophrenia really means.
The tutorial is open to anyone with an interest in the topic be they relatives, carers or, most importantly people with psychosis themselves.
