Psychosis or a psychotic disorder describe illnesses that can cause you to have distorted thoughts or lose touch with reality. Schizophrenia and psychosis are both classified as psychotic illnesses. Psychotic episodes are more likely to occur in young adults than other age groups. Most people make a full recovery after an episode.
Treatment is available for people with psychosis. Medication, psychological therapy, and community support can help reduce symptoms, allowing people to live a normal life. It’s important to see a doctor if you think you may have symptoms of psychosis.
