Why do I feel this way?

Are you or someone you know...

Seeing or hearing things that other people don't, like shadows in the corner of your eyes?

Having unusual thoughts, like experiencing the TV, Internet, or music sending you special messages?

Having a lot more energy than usual and racing thoughts, so much that you can't sleep for days?

Are these things bothering you or causing you to be concerned?

You may be experiencing symptoms of psychosis. Psychosis is a lot more common than you think. You are not alone.

The Early Assessment and Alliance (EASA) can help. EASA provides information and support to young people experiencing symptoms of psychosis for the first time.

    EASAart

    In an effort to de-stigmatize psychosis and treatment, the EASA Center for Excellence sponsored the creation of some comics with Portland-based artist, Colleen Coover. This three comic project is meant to highlight important aspects of many EASA participants' experiences, to provide education, and promote empathy.
