I've worked as a mental therapist for many years and have had multiple encounters with people who are suffering from psychosis. Psychosis is a symptom of a mental health disorder and can include hallucinations, delusions, or paranoia and may appear as if the person is agitated or they may be incoherent. Psychosis occurs when an individual experiences impairments in processing sensation, thoughts and emotions leading to a loss of contact with reality or is unable to engage in reality testing.
I'm going to share an experience with a *client I have worked with who shared their experience with psychosis:
