Psychosis - DRHC Dubai Psychiatry Clinic

Psychosis is a mental health condition characterized by a loss of contact with reality. People experiencing psychosis may have hallucinations, which are false perceptions of things that are not present, or delusions, which are false beliefs that are not based in reality. These experiences can be frightening and confusing and can make it difficult for individuals to distinguish between what is real and what is not.

Causes of psychosis

It's sometimes possible to identify the cause of psychosis as a specific mental health condition, such as:

  • Schizophrenia – a condition that causes a range of psychological symptoms, including hallucinations and delusions
  • Bipolar disorder – a mental health condition that affects mood; a person with bipolar disorder can have episodes of low mood (depression) and highs or elated mood (mania)
  • Severe depression – some people with depression also have symptoms of psychosis when they're very depressed

Symptoms of psychosis can vary but may include:

  • Hallucinations: Seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not real.
  • Delusions: Believing things that are clearly not true, such as believing you have special powers or that you are being persecuted.
  • Disorganized thinking: Difficulty organizing thoughts or making sense when speaking.
  • Disorganized behavior: Acting in ways that are unusual or inappropriate for the situation.
  • Negative symptoms: Lack of motivation, emotional expression, or ability to experience pleasure.

Psychosis

Treatment for psychosis typically involves a combination of medication, such as antipsychotic drugs, and psychotherapy. Early intervention is important in managing symptoms and improving long-term outcomes. Support from mental health professionals, family, and friends is also crucial in helping individuals with psychosis navigate their condition and daily life.
