This paper presents the coping strategies developed by one patient with 18 years experience of managing her own schizophrenic illness. The interventions which evolved gave her significant control over her illness. We report her experiences and emphasise that for some patients with treatment resistant schizophrenia, the patients themselves may have expertise in managing their symptoms.
