What is psychosis?
Psychosis is a condition where the functioning of a person's brain is severely disrupted, affecting that person's thoughts, perceptions, emotions and behaviour.
Like any other illness, psychosis is treatable and can happen to anyone. Psychotic symptoms can occur in an isolated episode or as part of an ongoing diagnosed illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or schizoaffective disorder.
