Well, I think there is goodness to be had from all versions of talk-therapy (Well, except the "quacky" ones..like some of the offshoot's of Primal Scream). But, just getting someone to open up to, and someone to acknowledge your pain, can be very helpful. This has actually been proven, especially if you train someone in basic listening skills.

I never realized I had problems with psychosis until the breaking point came 20 years into my mental health treatment, with the distress from losing a couple of deeply important people in my life being too much to handle. I also think that you have to weigh in the whole med treatment vs non-treatment thing, especially with psychosis, and what your symptoms are like. I think my power consumption of antidepressants is what built my 'perfect storm' setting for my psychosis.

Belief that's failed me now
As Life goes from bad to worse
No philosophy consoles me
In a clockwork universe..........
