Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

This comes with a trigger warning. Senua’s sacrifice is not for those who have schizophrenia or having relapses of psychosis. As someone with schizophrenia who is in recovery, Senua’s story was hard for me as it played on all the things that I would go through if I was having a relapse. 

The story of her struggle is as powerful as it is tragic. Some discredit Ninja Theory’s depiction of psychosis. It opens the conversation about how we embrace those who struggle with mental health and gives those who don’t suffer an opportunity to safely experience it for themselves.
