Course timetable
An abstract, absurd collection of images arranged to look like a water-drop. They include a green leaf overlapped by a water droplet which is overlapped by a flame. Behind these are a school of silver fish. An illustration of a purple eye floats at the top left, and music notes appear to be emerging from the centre.

Do You Hear What I Hear? And other ways of thinking about psychosis

This course is great if you:

  • want to explore different ways of thinking about psychosis

  • are curious about the experience of hearing, seeing, feeling, or believing things that differ from what other people experience

  • want to hear from people with different lived experience of psychosis


This course asks the questions: “How can we think about the experiences sometimes called psychosis?”

To answer it, we’re going to talk with each other, explore stories from people who have lived or living experience of psychosis (as well as people who have helped support someone with psychosis), and participate in activities that help us understand what psychosis can look and feel like. But we’re also going to talk about how complicated it is, and how there are different ways of thinking about it (and how not everyone agrees).

You will hear some different things that people have found helpful on their journey, but this course doesn’t provide you with a list of strategies to try or models to understand. We want this course to start a conversation about psychosis. And we’d love to see you there.


A note on language: We want to acknowledge that the word ‘psychosis’ describes a group of experiences, but it isn’t the only way to describe them. Lots of people don’t use this word the term because it doesn’t match their experience or beliefs. We will explore that in this course and take some time to unpack what this means.
