Not feeling yourself? First Episode Psychosis

Things people typically think of as psychotic experiences  – like seeing things that others do not or having strange strong beliefs that others  do not hold – may actually follow on from other early signs of illness.  
Psychosis often develops over time. It can start up to 18 months before a clear psychotic episode. Things that start off as small changes in the way you are thinking and acting may turn into bigger changes which can upset you and people around you.  


What does the lead up to psychosis look like?




Common early signs of psychosis are mood changes and problems concentrating. However, there are many different signs of psychosis. If you are noticing changes in yourself or someone else, see 'Signs of Psychosis' in the Self-help documents section.
