“Edgy, immediate and contemporary” Elizabeth Diamond, author.
My Beautiful Psychosis: Making Sense of Madness is a stunning debut memoir from international award winning documentary filmmaker, Emma Goude. It is a gritty tale of transformation, depicting from the inside some of the most powerful experiences a human mind can endure. It questions conventional methods of treating psychosis and point towards a radical vision where diagnosis of mental illness makes allowances for spiritual growth and transformation rather than simply treating a perceived brain chemical imbalance.
“From the first page I was hooked.’ Dr. Russell Razzaque, author and Consultant Psychiatrist.
What if psychosis is really a wake up call?
“A guiding light for individuals, loved ones and healthcare providers.” Emma Bragdon, PhD. Executive Director, Integrative Mental Health for You.
My Beautiful Psychosis: Making Sense of Madness turns on its head the idea that psychosis is a debilitating illness, caused by a brain chemical imbalance, which requires medication for life. It is an intense, honest and lucid memoir, an exposing and vulnerable adventure through a psyche that is spilling out undigested psychological material to reveal secrets that have been forgotten.
“I was taken by her authenticity and vulnerability.” Phil Borges, Director Crazywise.
