About psychosis

Psychosis is a term used to describe a range of different experiences and often causes people to perceive or interpret things differently from those around them; they can also hear, see or feel things that others cannot.

How do I know if I have psychosis

Everybody thinks and feels differently, this is normal. There are however some common signs that could show you’re possibly experiencing psychosis.

Why early intervention matters

Treating a family member or someone you know who may be experiencing a first episode of psychosis as early as possible is important. Research shows early intervention and treatment can improve people’s long-term well-being.

How to get help

If you are worried that a friend, child/young person, relative, or someone you know may be experiencing psychosis, there are ways you can help them. The sooner someone receives help for psychosis, the better their long-term outcomes are likely to be.

Tools, guidance and fact sheets
