On 19.01.2013 the Guardian's weekend magazine published a story entitled 'My daughter the schizophrenic'. I was previously aware of this little girl as I had seen the documentary 'Born schizophrenic'. The documentary gave me sleepless nights. The article brought them back. I had to respond and I am thrilled that YoungMinds (@YoungMindsUK) agreed to publish it as a joint statement. This, for me, indicates that there are many of us, in all sectors fighting for better ways of thinking and talking about young people with psychological difficulties.
