When left untreated, psychotic disorders can impact nearly every aspect of a person’s life. If you suspect that you might have a psychotic disorder, take The Recovery Village’s self-assessment quiz to evaluate your symptoms.
Psychotic disorders are a class of mental health conditions that distort reality. The distortion can make it difficult for individuals living with a psychotic disorder to perceive themselves and the world as they are. Psychotic disorders are different than psychosis, which causes an individual to temporarily lose touch with reality. In some cases, psychosis is a symptom of a psychotic disorder, but psychosis can also affect people who do not have a psychotic disorder. Because of this distinction, the answers to the questions, “Do I have a psychotic disorder?” and, “Do I have psychosis?” may be different.
While some psychotic disorders affect individuals for a short period, the symptoms of others may be chronic and lifelong. Without medical intervention, the hallucinations, delusions, and disorganized thinking characteristic of psychotic disorders can make carrying out simple daily tasks difficult.
Fortunately, evidence-based treatment and teletherapy can help people living with psychotic disorders find relief from many of their symptoms. If you’ve ever wondered if you have a psychotic disorder, online assessments, including The Recovery Village’s psychotic disorder test, can help you decide if you need to seek professional treatment.

The Recovery Village’s psychotic disorder questionnaire can help you determine if you have a psychotic disorder. However, it’s important to keep in mind that this assessment is not a substitute for a clinical diagnosis from a mental health professional. If you do suspect that you have a psychotic disorder, a reputable clinician can accurately evaluate your symptoms and provide professional treatment recommendations. If your psychotic disorder also involves addiction, it’s best to reach out to a dual diagnosis center like The Recovery Village.
The following quiz is based on diagnostic criteria for psychotic disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition. This assessment is different than a psychosis screening questionnaire, which only evaluates short-term states of psychosis.
