Recovery from psychosis not only means treating symptoms with medication and/or targeted therapy, it also means finding ways to “zap” the stressors that are getting in the way from us living the lives we want to lead. The best chance for recovery is setting on this path early, and surrounding yourself with a team of friends, family and health and wellness professionals who can support you as you develop a lifestyle that works best for your health.
