Psychotic disorders are a group of serious mental illnesses that affect a person’s ability to think clearly, make good judgments, respond emotionally, communicate effectively, interpret reality, and behave appropriately for the situation. When symptoms become severe, people may have trouble staying in touch with reality and handling daily life, but even severe psychotic disorders are treatable.
There are different types of psychotic disorders including schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, schizophreniform disorder, brief psychotic disorder, delusional disorder, shared psychotic disorder, substance-induced psychotic disorder, psychotic disorder due to another medical condition, and paraphrenia.
There are varied symptoms of psychotic disorders; however, the most common are hallucinations, delusions, and disordered thinking.
