The Psychosis Therapy Project and USEMI are two interlinked therapy services for people with experience of psychosis, complex PTSD and/or racial trauma.
Psychosis Therapy Project
The Psychosis Therapy Project (PTP) provides specialist psychotherapy for people experiencing psychosis.
It aims to help people to develop their own understanding of their experiences in a safe, non-judgemental and strictly confidential environment.
It was created in response to the lack of talking therapy provision for people with a diagnosis of psychosis in the community.
USEMI Racial Trauma Clinic
The USEMI Racial Trauma Clinic is the specialist BAME stream of the PTP.
It aims to meet the specific needs of individuals whose experience of severe mental illness is impacted by race, ethnicity and culture.
It was created in response to the disproportionate number of people of colour impacted by psychosis and severe mental illness.
We work in the community with people who are socially and economically excluded and receive very little support besides medication.
- Specialist psychotherapy
- A range of groups
We are committed to the development of innovative psychotherapeutic interventions in the community. Our interventions:
- Challenge stigma and discrimination and reject the notion of a ‘corrective’ model.
- Nurture a therapeutic environment that combines containment, acceptance and validation.
- Draw on psychoanalytic, trauma-informed and compassion-focused principles.
