Recovering from Psychosis
- With help from a mental health professional, and support from family and friends, psychosis is treatable, and recovery can be expected.
- Treatment is tailored to the severity of the disorder. Medication can be prescribed by a Physician and counselling is almost always recommended.
- You can think of recovery from psychosis as part of a personal journey to feel a degree of satisfaction with life and have meaningful relationships with people you trust – whether they are family members, friends or people at school or work.
- Recovery also means different things to each person. For some, recovery means that no symptoms will persist, while for others, recovery means learning to live a full life despite any ongoing symptoms.
