Delusions and hallucinations are the two main symptoms of psychotic disorders. Psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and substance-induced psychotic disorder can also cause confusion, unusual movements, disorganized speech, and a loss of interest in people and activities.
The triggers of psychotic disorders vary, and can include genetics, brain chemistry, substance abuse, and life stressors. Psychotic disorders can lead to issues with emotions, interpersonal relationships, and other mental health disorders such as depression and anxiety.
Despite their impact on day-to-day life, psychotic disorders can be successfully managed with a combination of therapy and medication.
