As the name suggests, psychosis is a mental disorder that is quite serious in nature. Under this condition, the thinking and emotions of the patient are so impaired that he/she starts living in a world of hallucination or imagination. In simple words, the patient is lost in his/her own imaginary world that is quite away from reality. False thoughts or delusions and hallucinations i.e. hearing things that are not actually present are two chief characteristics of this mental disorder.

As per medical science, these are called as ‘positive symptoms’ of the disorder. On the other hand, there are some ‘negative symptoms’ as well which may include social withdrawal or living in complete isolation and loss of motivation in life. Such a condition can become life-threatening as well. It is because when mind is filled with such negative thoughts and emotions then there are chances that the sufferer may hurt himself/herself.
