In her article (link below), Sally shares her experiences as a way to improve our understanding of what individuals living with psychosis go through. She also encourages us to avoid holding judgment or being fearful of those affected, as often they are the ones who are terrified and confused, and require early support and treatment.

Terrified of the unpredictable turmoil in my head, I would have harmed myself well before harming others."
