PSYCHOSIS is a mental condition which affects an individual’s thinking, perception, feelings and behaviours. It’s characterised by delusions, hallucinations and disorganised behaviour, which can cause people to lose touch with reality. It causes significant distress and impairment to them and their loved ones.
Psychosis is serious, and it mostly strikes during late adolescence and early adulthood. However, early intervention and treatment has been shown to lead to better treatment outcomes. There are new and more effective medications, as well as improved programmes which contribute to a better outcome for individuals with psychosis.
If you or someone you know is having experiencing symptoms of psychosis, or are feeling unsure, seek professional help by contacting CHAT for a mental health check, or approach:
