Psychosis can be a symptom of other health concerns, such as Traumatic Brain Injuries, Schizophrenia, Epilepsy, and Alzheimer’s. Usually described as happening in episodes, psychosis involves a loss of reality. Hallucinations and delusions are types of psychosis. Hallucinations involve seeing or hearing things that aren’t there, while delusions involve believing something is true when it’s not.
Available Treatment Options
Treatment for psychosis usually includes medications because when someone loses their sense of reality, they could be a danger to themselves or others.
Therapist interventions for psychosis include behavioral management strategies and adjusting to the medication and potential side effects.
