What is psychosis?

Psychosis is a mental health condition that affects how the brain processes information and  may cause severe disturbances in thinking, emotion, and behaviour.

During a period of psychosis, a person may lose touch with reality and have difficulty understanding what is real and what is not. Psychosis involves hallucinations (visual and/or auditory experiences that are not real) and/or delusions (false beliefs that are not based in reality).

People who have schizophrenia spectrum disorders experience psychosis but it is a symptom for other conditions as well.
