Uncharacteristic Behavior or Psychosis

Uncharacteristic Behavior or Psychosis

Psychosis is a mental illness that causes someone to experience some loss of contact with reality. Research suggests that the earlier someone begins treatment for a psychotic illness, the better their chances of a faster and more complete recovery.

Recognize the symptoms of psychosis

  • Having serious problems at work or school
  • Seeing or hearing things that others don’t
  • Having firmly held beliefs not shared by others
  • Withdrawing from social interactions
  • Speaking or thinking in a disorganized way
  • Feeling paranoid

If someone you know exhibits these or other symptoms of psychosis, urge them to meet with a specially trained Allwell counselor. Contact your local Allwell Counseling Center for information or an appointment.
