eheadspace live info session: understanding psychosis
People with psychosis have problems in the way they interpret the real world. This means that psychosis may cause you to misinterpret or confuse what is going on around you.
Psychosis usually affects your beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behaviour. For example, you may have hallucinations (in which you see or hear things that are not there) or delusions (false beliefs or ideas).
There are several symptoms and types of psychosis. If you know someone with psychosis, there are a number of things you can do help them cope and find out how psychosis can be treated.
Take this opportunity to speak anonymously online to our mental health professionals and headspace Youth National Reference Group members. Hear from others about their experiences and questions around supporting young people with psychosis.
