Psychotic Disorders

What are Psychotic Disorders?

Psychotic disorders are a set of mental health disorders that cause abnormal perceptions and thinking. Known as thought disorders, people who experience psychosis lose touch with their reality. The two main symptoms people with psychosis experience are delusions and hallucinations. Delusions consist of fixed false beliefs such as thinking someone is out to get them, or people are talking about them, or they have super powers. Hallucinations are false perceptions that may include hearing voices, seeing things that are not present, or feeling something that is not there.

With active psychosis, it is imperative the patient receives education about the disease process and family education is strongly recommended. Psychotherapy and medication management are the mainstay treatment modalities recommended to help achieve remissions of psychosis.
