"Emma manages to bring the reader into the experience in a way I have never seen before."-- Dr. Russell Razzaque, Consultant Psychiatrist, author Breaking Down Is Waking Up and founder of Peer Supported Open Dialogue

Through seven episodes, author Emma Goude takes readers on a journey to make sense of psychosis. As a troubled twenty-something, she experienced the harsh landscapes of psychiatric wards before eventually becoming the respected documentary filmmaker she is today. In this personal journey, Goude campaigns for a new perspective on mental health and well-being. My Beautiful Psychosis has a powerful message to convey and turns on its head the idea that psychosis is a debilitating illness, caused by a brain chemical imbalance, which requires medication for life. Whilst medication is sometimes useful, it doesn't really attend to the deeper need: for validation, compassionate holding, skillful navigation and most of all grounding.

This book will inspire others who have been given a label that has severely restricted their lives, and act as a beacon of light for them to reclaim the power of their own innate healing ability.

Emma Goude is an international award-winning documentary filmmaker who started out at the BBC. Having had six psychiatric admissions, one of them under a sectioning, she has written My Beautiful Psychosis to change the perception of psychosis as a devastating and stigmatizing illness. She hopes that sharing her story will inspire others, improve attitudes, and ultimately contribute to a better system of care. She is currently living in Buenos Aires, where she is following her passion for dancing tango.
