A Map of the Mind Fields: Managing Adolescent Psychosis

Synopsis
Until recently a diagnosis of psychosis was seen as the end to normal life. With onset occurring most often in young people between 13 and 25, this serious mental health disorder often has tragic consequences when undiagnosed or not properly dealt with. Psychosis is a brain disorder where an individual experiences some loss of contact with reality. Symptoms include hallucinations, delusions, paranoia and disorganised thoughts and speech. Three people share their personal stories: Amanda, 16, Max. 12, and Tara, 18. The programme sheds light on the current situation, offering practical tools for understanding the problems and knowing where to find solutions.
