Psychosis: Stories of Recovery and Hope

Conference and Book Launch

A Conference was held on 22nd February, 2011, to launch the book, “Psychosis: Stories Of Recovery and Hope”, edited by Jerome Carson, Hannah Cordle and Paul Richards, with photos by Jane Fradgley.


It was a stimulating and uplifting Conference – well attended, including people from Devon and Belfast. This was the 3rd Conference to be held on recovery issues by SLaM. It was the first involving and very much led by people with lived experience.

The Conference was chaired by Gabrielle Richards in the morning and Jerome Carson in the afternoon. There was a great atmosphere of acceptance, simple kindnesses, and shared humanity.

Some of the presenters have shared their experiences in the book, which was launched at the end of the day. Proceeds from the book sale are to go to Charity. Some contributors also had creative writing and art work on sale.
