Severe mental illness (psychosis)
This leaflet is aimed at:
the carers of people with severe mental illness (psychosis) who provide continuing help and support, without pay, to a relative, partner or friend;
the psychiatrists and other members of the mental health team involved in the care and treatment of the person with severe mental illness.
It suggests ways of improving communication and liaison that allow mutual respect and real working partnerships to develop from the point of diagnosis.
