Dear Members,

It would be very helpful if you could tell our community how you deal with the return of your psychosis (i.e., the return of your paranoia, delusions or hearing voices). The following is a questionnaire that assesses how people cope with the return of their psychosis (in Schizophrenia, Delusional Disorder, or Schizoaffective Disorder).

Here's the first question:

    When my psychosis returns:
    • I ensure that I stay on the prescribed dose of my antipsychotic medication.
Once you answer, you will be shown how our other members have answered.
