About The Things I See: Living with Psychosis
A short film by the BBC which sees three people sit down and tell their stories of living with mental health conditions and how they individually manage and deal with delusions which vary from the bizarre and peculiar, to the sinister and terrifying.Blogger Sophie Eliza began hearing voices at the start of her psychosis and gradually became convinced that a group of people were out to get her. Katy’s experience of psychosis started whilst being bullied in college and it was after eventually being sectioned that her most frightening delusions began. Unlike Katy and Sophie, Ed experienced a single episode of psychosis, centred on the delusional belief that he was a sinner.Understanding the true reality of mental illness and dysmorphic delusions is something that is very hard to comprehend if you haven’t experienced these conditions first hand. Through their moving and personal accounts, and through dramatic reconstruction and visual effects, Sophie, Katy and Ed share their experiences in this intimate, poignant and at times challenging documentary.
