About Psychosis

What is Psychosis?

The word psychosis is used to describe conditions that affect the mind, where there has been some loss of contact with reality. When someone becomes ill in this way, it is called a psychotic episode. During a period of psychosis, a person’s thoughts and perceptions are not reflective of the reality others experience, and the individual may have difficulty understanding what is real and what is not. Our staff here at AMP Mental Health is adept at providing compassionate psychiatric and therapy care for those suffering from psychosis symptoms. 

Understanding the SIGNS

What Are The Symptoms?

Symptoms of psychosis include delusions (false beliefs) and hallucinations (seeing or hearing things that others do not see or hear). Other symptoms include incoherent or nonsense speech and behavior that is inappropriate for the situation. A person in a psychotic episode also may experience depression, anxiety, sleep problems, social withdrawal, lack of motivation, and difficulty functioning overall.

Sudden drop in grades or job performance

New trouble thinking clearly or concentrating

Suspiciousness, paranoid ideas, or uneasiness with others

Withdrawing socially, spending a lot more time alone than usual

Unusual, overly intense new ideas, strange feelings, or no feelings at all

Decline in self-care or personal hygiene

Difficulty telling reality from fantasy

Confused speech or trouble communicating

Treatment Solutions

Address the Symptoms

Through a personalized treatment plan, including medication management, therapy, and support services, we aim to address the complex symptoms of psychosis while empowering individuals to regain control over their lives.

Individual or group psychotherapy is typically based on principles of cognitive behavior therapy. This therapy is tailored to each patient’s needs and emphasizes resilience training, illness and wellness management, and building coping skills.

Family support and education teach family members about psychosis, coping, communication, and problem-solving skills. Family members who are informed and involved are more prepared to help loved ones through the recovery process.

Medication management (also called pharmacotherapy) helps reduce psychosis symptoms. Medication selection and dosing are tailored to patients with early psychosis and their individual needs. Like all medications, antipsychotic drugs have risks and benefits.
