Psychosis affects 1 in 100 people, often emerging between the ages of 14 and 30. Symptoms can be very distressing but the sooner someone seeks help the better their chances of recovery. Here at Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust (Youthspace) we have just launched a Psychosis Awareness Public Health Campaign in the South of Birmingham with the aim of improving community awareness of the symptoms of psychosis and to promote the benefits of seeking help. Launched on January 7th 2012, our campaign will run for the next 18-months. Look out for us in local shopping centres and supermarkets, at community, music and student events and keep your eyes open for our posters on buses and in local magazines. Improve your awareness and log on to our website www.youthspace.me/psychosis, join our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter – @YouthSpace1
