Psychotic disorders can be the most isolating and frightening mental illnesses, both for those with them and for their loved ones. These disorders can cause a variety of symptoms and behaviors, including disordered thinking, mood swings, withdrawing from social situations, delusions and hallucinations. These symptoms can have devastating consequences, including decreased feelings of happiness, inability to communicate effectively with others, cognitive impairment, alienation from others and feelings of intense isolation. This can be a highly distressing, painful experience, both for the individuals experiencing them, and for their loved ones.
For some, psychotic disorders are chronic conditions that require continuing psychiatric treatment; for others, psychotic episodes are only temporary. Regardless, specific treatment is vital to helping those with psychotic disorders find wholeness and healing. That’s why Solara’s Mental Health and Psychiatric Center has specialized in treating psychotic disorders in San Diego.
