With reference to two journals written by women hospitalized with
psychotic disorders and subsequently published (Hart, 1997; Jefferson,
1975), I examine the role of writing in the context of acute ‘mental
illness’.1 In particular, I suggest that simply recording the everyday may
help psychotic patients to (re)fashion a coherent sense of selfhood.
