Psychotic disorders are severe mental disorders that often cause individuals to have abnormal thinking and perceptions. Some of the most devastating effects include delusions and hallucinations, an inability to communicate with others logically, and cognitive impairment. The World Health Organization (WHO) ranks psychosis as the third-most disabling medical condition in the world.
Psychotic symptoms are present in people with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder. They can also be experienced by people with bipolar disorder and are often exacerbated by alcohol and illegal drug use. Individuals who suffer from psychotic disorder can be particularly fragile and experience difficulty relating to the world around them.
