Psychosis

Psychosis is a distressing mental health problem that can disrupt not only the life of the sufferer but also those close to them.

Psychosis can develop in young people who have suffered abuse or trauma or who have used drugs/alcohol.

Psychosis is characterised by beliefs and convictions that develop over time which puts the person at odds with those around them, for example, misinterpreting events, hearing voices or visual disturbances. This condition causes a great deal of confusion and anxiety and can alienate the person and put them at risk.

If you have concerns that a young person you care about is suffering from Psychosis contact your GP.
