What Can Psychosis Feel Like?

Discover all the different symptoms

  • Everyone with psychosis has a unique set of experiences and early signs can be vague and barely noticeable.

    If you are experiencing psychosis you may notice changes in your thinking; it may be difficult to think as clearly as usual and your thoughts may feel out of control. You may hear or see or feel things which others cannot (hallucinations) or you may develop unusual beliefs (sometimes called delusions). Some people with psychosis lose their motivation and interest in things, or feel they have fewer thoughts or less to say than usual. A diagnosis of psychosis would only be used when these experiences are severe and frequent enough to cause distress or affect the person’s life.
