I highlighted Rufus’s documentary The Doctor Who Hears Voices on this blog before. It’s on youtube here. Rufus May had a radical experience with an altered state of consciousness (psychosis) which was labeled schizophrenia at the time. He’s completely recovered and is now a clinical psychologist who works for the National Health Service in England.
Rufus tells his story to Will Hall on Madness Radio here. Towards the end of the interview he speaks about the exciting ways more enlightened mental health professionals and peers are working with people who hear voices.
So many of us who get locked into a lifetime of drugs start like Rufus, but are not given the opportunity to heal naturally and come through our psyche’s crisis.
I highly recommend your surfing through the archives at Madness Radio. Will Hall has interviewed some great people. I’ve posted several of these interviews in the past, but there are many more.
