There are a number of symptoms that can happen when someone is having an event of psychosis. Not everyone who has psychosis will experience the same, or all, symptoms, nor will everyone experience them in exactly the same way. If you suspect that you, a family member or friend is experiencing symptoms talk to a doctor for a diagnosis and treatment options.
The most common psychosis symptoms people have shared are:
When thoughts and speech are muddled and making sense of them may be difficult, or if behaviour is very bizarre or unusual, you can describe them as “disorganized”.
If you think these symptoms are happening in you or someone you love, please talk to your doctor. You do not have to have ALL of these symptoms to be experiencing psychosis.Download handout with more details.
