Have you ever lost touch with reality?
This isn’t a condition in its own right but is a symptom of a number of mental illness or as an effect with various types of substance misuse. Being able to identify and treat this symptom with an early diagnosis improves the longer-term outcomes.
Psychosis is when you perceive or interpret reality in a very different way from people around you. You may have heard of a psychotic experience or psychotic episode. The most common symptoms of psychosis are hallucinations, delusions, disorganisation of thoughts, speech and behaviour, disordered thinking, obsessive thinking, concentration and sleep issues and even catatonia.
