Frequenty Asked Questions

Psychosis can be treated by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy because it's the most effective and widely used approach for patients. Counsellors help patients based on the understanding of how they reflect on their experiences and how they become distressed. By using different situations, the counsellor tries to show the reality to the patient.

Psychosis can be cured by counselling, but it's not happened quickly and just after attending a few sessions. Consistent counselling sessions can decrease the intensity of psychosis and help you to manage the symptoms. Psychosis does not just go away entirely for life. It is triggered during and after the treatment.

Psychosis disorder is a very serious illness, and it needs to be treated. It is caused by abnormal thinking and perceptions, and the patient loses touch with reality. There are many symptoms of psychosis, but hallucinations and delusions are the most common ones.

Psychosis needs to be treated very rapidly because of really disturbing and terrible symptoms. If it's not treated on time, then it will lead to financial difficulties, illness, injuries and even death.

What is Psychosis?

Psychosis is a state in which people lose touch with reality and end up hallucinating and having delusions. The precise meaning of psychosis may vary from case to case; some might see things that are not there, while others might hear things that are not true.

Psychotic disorders often tend to be a symptom of some other problems or disorders. Problems like schizophrenia that can cause psychosis are amongst the top mental health challenges faced by the UAE.

Why Does Psychosis Happens?

There are different risk factors for psychosis, as the exact cause is not yet known. These include:

Drugs

Some drugs like LSD and amphetamines can lead to drug induced psychosis.

Complications at Birth

Maternal infections and other complications at birth can also increase the risk of psychosis.

Genetics

Those with a family history of psychosis are at a greater risk of it.

Illnesses

Certain ailments, especially those affecting the brain and the mind, can cause psychosis. Some examples include schizophrenia, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, etc.

Injuries

Brain injuries can also cause psychosis.

Trauma

Traumatic incidence of any sort can lead to psychosis.

Others

Brain changes and certain hormones can also trigger psychosis. Similarly, sleep problems can also lead to sleep psychosis.

Can PTSD Lead to Psychosis?

People with a history of trauma can experience psychosis. However, not all people with PTSD will get a psychotic disorder. Trauma induced psychosis symptoms include:

What are the Symptoms of Psychosis?

The symptoms of psychosis include:

Delusions

People with psychosis might also be delusional. They then hold beliefs that are not true. Some believe others are trying to harm them, while others might think people are conspiring against them.

Disorganized Behavior

Psychosis also causes people to exhibit unusual behavior, especially which does not befit the situation.

Disorganized Thoughts

As the way their brain processes information goes haywire, psychosis also leads to disorganized thoughts.

Hallucinations

In this state, people imagine things. They might see, hear, or even touch things that are not there, but are conjured by their mind. They do not know that what they are seeing is a hallucination.

Catatonia

A state where the person becomes unresponsive to various stimuli is known as catatonia, which may be present in those having psychosis.

Negative Symptoms

They might also become emotionally isolated, move less, and have low motivation.

Paranoia

People with a psychotic disorder also tend to be more paranoid. They think others are out there to get them and might also obsess about such matters.

The early signs of psychosis, also knowns as FEP, include:

What Does Psychosis Feels Like?

People who have psychosis cannot tell reality apart from the conjured thoughts, which can be very confusing for them. They might also feel very overwhelmed and alone as well.

How Long Does Psychosis Last?

The duration of psychosis is contingent on the cause. Those induced by substances might take from a few days to a few weeks. But the ballpark time tends to be around a month or so.

Which Drug Causes Psychosis?

Certain drugs can trigger psychosis, which is referred to as drug-induced psychosis. Examples of such drugs include cannabis, stimulants like cocaine, and hallucinogens.

What Are the Complications of Psychosis?

Psychosis itself greatly affects the health of the person but increases risk for other problems. These include:

What is the Difference Between Psychosis and Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a type of psychotic disorder in which a person experiences psychotic symptoms like hallucinations alongside other cognitive and behavioral problems. Therefore, psychosis is a symptom of schizophrenia.

Moreover, there are various types of psychosis, for example, postpartum psychosis, psychosis after stroke, which are not related to schizophrenia.

How Long Does Psychosis Last in Schizophrenia?

A psychotic episode needs to be observed for over 6 months for the diagnosis of schizophrenia.

How to Recover From and Treat Psychosis?

Psychosis treatment is a composite of a combination of the following:

Medication

Antipsychotic medication is prescribed to improve the symptoms of psychosis. Some people may be weaned off the drug, whereas those with permanent psychosis might have to take these for life.

Therapy

There are many therapy options like CBT (Cognitive behavioral therapy), family intervention therapy, etc., that can be of help. Your mental health expert at Fitcy Health Dubai will determine which type of therapy best suits your condition.

Hospitalization

In cases where the symptoms are severe, patients may be hospitalized as well.

Support

Patients also need extra support and help from their loved ones and community members.

How to Help Someone With Psychosis?

Since psychosis is a medical emergency, if you know of someone having a psychotic episode, or you are witnessing severe symptoms, get them immediate help, lest they harm others or themselves.

But it is not just during the episode that they need help; otherwise, as well, people with mental health issues need all the support they can get. Some ways you can be of help include:

Help With Finances

It may be hard for people with psychosis to hold a job. Medication and treatment are the added expenses that they have to bear. So, if needed, do offer them financial support.

Be Patient With Them

It is not easy to live with psychosis. But you must dig into your reserves of patience and be there for them regardless.

Watch Out For Yourself Too

If you are the primary caregiver of someone with psychosis, you must pay attention to your mental health as well. You can consult mental health experts at Fitcy Health. As the facility is virtual, you do not have to worry about the commute and leaving your loved one with someone else.

Similarly, the messaging dashboard allows you to consult the expert whenever. There are also various packages at competitive prices, so everyone can get the help that they need.
