CHANGING THE FACE OF PSYCHOSIS
When you think of psychosis, do you think of a group of people working together as an effective team? Do you think of faces of leadership? Students With Psychosis is challenging how the world sees people living with psychosis. Students With Psychosis puts our students at the decision-making table; 100% of our Executive Board Members and Staff are current student leaders or recently graduated alumni from our student leader program or internship program.
Students With Psychosis envisions a world where no student or advocate living with psychosis worldwide goes without community and access to education.
Students With Psychosis values (1) the lived experience perspective in leadership positions, (2) both the accurate and respectful representation of people living with psychosis, (3) community, workplace, and educational environments to not only be supportive but also empowering to people living with psychosis, (4) a person’s worth is not determined by grades or degree level, and (5) informed shared decision making in treatment options. Students With Psychosis does not promote any particular treatment options.
Students With Psychosis empowers students and advocates living with psychosis worldwide through community building and collaboration.
Students With Psychosis aims to expand mental health/brain health advocacy at the college level to ensure psychosis representation, including a global perspective. Too often is psychosis left out of the mental health/brain health conversation on college campuses, and our narrative is also often limited, excluding intersectional community members.
Our primary objectives include: (1) growing and connecting our virtual and in-person programs, (2) organizing outreach initiatives, and (3) founding in-person college clubs/affiliates/hubs.
