How to avoid the diagnosis of schizophrenia

How to avoid the diagnosis of schizophrenia

Zoom in to this image and read text description

I am part of a facebook forum called 'Recovery in the Bin'.  This User Led group is for MH Survivors and Supporters who are fed up with the way colonised 'recovery' is being used to discipline and control those who are trying to find a place in the world, to live as they wish, trying to deal with the very real mental distress they encounter on a daily basis. We believe in human rights and social justice!

Today someone wanted to create a spoof leaflet on how not to be diagnosed with personality disorder, it inspired me to do 'How to not get diagnosed with schizophrenia or psychosis'

Here it is!
