Learn to Journey through Madness with a mad person in a way that builds relationship. Understand psychosis in a new way with specific strategies that help you be a healer. Stop being anxious and frustrated and sending people to the hospital, increasing their medications or further marginalizing them.

It is true conflicts associated with “psychosis” can feel very grim. You are not nearly as alone as you may think. Simple acceptance is often the first step towards transforming your life and relationships.
