Understanding Psychosis and Treatments

“Psychosis”, also known as ‘formal thought disorder’, is a term used in mental health which involves affecting people’s perception of the world around them. But what do we actually mean when we talk about psychosis and how can it be treated?

In the supportive material in this page, you will find a handout which will help you to understand what psychosis is and how it can be treated. We suggest that you start with “Understanding Psychosis and Treatments” and then move on to “Managing Psychosis at Home” to get the most out of the exercises. To download the file, just click or tap on the button.

If you find these courses useful, you might want to check out our supportive material on Managing Psychosis at Home, which looks at some coping strategies and techniques you might find helpful. It follows on nicely from what we cover here, so we hope you’ll find both useful.

We know it can be difficult to read or think about subjects like these, especially if you struggle with similar issues yourself. If you want to talk to someone, please remember you can ring Slough CMHT and the Recovery Team on 01753 690 950.
