What is psychosis?

“Psychosis” is not a specific illness but a term to describe a broad range of mental health symptoms. These symptoms may include changes in our thoughts and perceptions that can make us feel confused or distressed when interacting with the world. 

Symptoms can come and go and vary in intensity over time, but sometimes they persist or worsen, disrupting day-to-day activities like studying, working, or socializing. In the United States, about 100,000 young people experience psychosis for the first time each year.
