John Richardson and Anne Cooke  on how we think about psychosis and schizophrenia.

 

Many people hear voices, believe things that others find strange, or sometimes appear out of touch with reality. These experiences are sometimes seen as symptoms of psychosis or schizophrenia. But what is “psychosis”? In this public lecture our own Anne Cooke discusses what these experience mean, how we see them and what hope we can hold if we’re given such a a diagnosis. Anne is joined by filmmaker John Richardson who talks about his own experience of psychosis and hospitalisation.

This talk was recorded on the 21st of March 2019.
