Re: psychiatry

Psychosis is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality".

Hi dnise68,
Generally psychosis is refered to as a pattern of belief and behaviour including,

Hallucinations, verbal, visual, somatic, touch, smell, psychic.
Delusions: false beliefs based on sufferers perceptions
and Distorted reality: a break with understanding the world around them, and their own existence within that world. i.e. distorted reality.

There's a fabulous book of this one that explains it really well:
SANE Guide to Psychosis SKU: SKU_16140
see if you might read it.
Regards, waratah
