A Picture Of Mental Health

This is Catherine Amey who I just shot in a cafe in Worthing, West Sussex. The full story will appear in a women's magazine in a month or so but here she gives a rough outline of why we did the shoot:

The feature was about my mental health journey starting from February last year when I experienced a severe psychotic episode. (Psychosis is a very serious mental illness where the patient completely loses touch with reality.) My episode was the result of a side effect of an antidepressant that had been prescribed by my GP.  While psychotic, I experienced some very frightening hallucinations and delusions and ended up having to be sectioned. The article describes my experience of psychosis as well as my time in hospital and recovery after discharge.
