Psychosis is a term that describes the symptoms experienced by someone who has lost touch with reality. Someone who has an episode of psychosis may have hallucinations and a difficult time knowing what is real, and they may have altered thoughts and speech. Psychosis is often caused by trauma, medication, or a physical or mental condition. Drug and alcohol abuse may only worsen the symptoms of psychosis.
Assessing Your Risk of Psychosis & Psychotic Disorders
If you’re concerned that you may have psychosis, you can take a free, confidential self-assessment. However, a quiz cannot substitute an official diagnosis of a psychotic disorder. Once you complete a quiz, you can use the results as a baseline to discuss psychosis treatment options with your doctor or therapist.
