From an email I received:
We are conducting a series of research studies on the recovery from long-term psychotic conditions, and we are looking for some participants. I am the principal researcher of this research and also a member of the ICSPP, and I am very excited to adventure into this territory, performing high quality research that directly challenges the assumptions of mainstream psychology and psychiatry with the intention of publishing this research in peer-reviewed journals.
At this point, we are looking for participants who may satisfy the criteria of having recovered from long-term psychosis. Our web page defines these terms more specifically (see the address below), and I believe you will appreciate the definitions used in this research. We have put in a lot of effort to avoid (and even directly challenge) the assumptions with which these terms are usually held within the mainstream mental health field and in the public in general. This will be truly pioneering research which fully validates the possibility of recovery, allowing those who have recovered from distressing anomalous experiences to contribute their wisdom and knowledge for the benefit of those who are still struggling with such experiences, as well as for the benefit for all of society!

Thank you for your consideration. I am hopeful that this research will play an invaluable role in supporting the effort to transform our crippled mental health care system. Please feel free to forward this email to any individual or group who you think may be interested,
