New here, caring for wife who suffers from psychosis


I’m just trying to find resources and information/experiences about how people are coping with, in particular, dealing with friends and family who don’t quite understand the seriousness of certain conditions…

Hi Phil,

I suspect this takes time and is part of the treatment process. Is your wife receiving talking therapies?

There is information here which may be of help


Dear Phil
I care for a relative with psychosis.
It is hard for others to appreciate how hard psychosis can be for the sufferer and the family.
I keep on explaining and the message gradually gets through to some but not all.
I wish you strength.
Warm wishes Ula
