Psychosis is a huge part of many serious mental illnesses, including schizophrenia.
Jennifer Gerlach, LCSW, is a clinician with a mission: to spread a message of hope and recovery to encourage young adults living with serious mental illness.
She says, “Your Story Matters AND You Are More Than Your Story”
Her story will inspire you as well.
Recently, she completed a workbook geared toward young adults living with psychosis. The Psychosis and Mental Health Recovery Workbook: Activities for Young Adults from Act, Dbt, and Recovery-oriented Cbt. The release date is May 18.
In the book, she asks:
How can I use my voice to reduce the other voices I hear?
Who should I tell about my experiences with psychosis?
What steps should I take after a mental health crisis?
