What Is Psychosis?

Psychosis is commonly misunderstood, and may be more common than you think, given that around 3-5% of individuals will experience psychosis at some point in their lifetime. 

Psychosis is not a diagnosis. Psychosis is a term that describes a number of experiences that cause distress, may be disorienting, and make it challenging to tell what is real and not real. 

Some common experiences people with psychosis may have are: 

  • Feeling like your mind is playing tricks on you.
  • Seeing or hearing things others do not.
  • Worrying that others may be out to harm you.
  • Worrying about troubling beliefs.
  • Isolating from friends or family.

Psychosis can affect people differently. Some people aren’t really bothered by their experiences, while others may be very upset and stressed out by them. No matter where you are on this continuum, we will help you figure out what kind of support and help will work for you. 

We know that the sooner someone finds support, the better outcomes they have. We are here to make this journey as seamless, efficient, and effective as possible.
