Treating Young Adults With Psychotic Disorders

Psychotic disorders encompass a broad group of serious mental illnesses that affect the mind – notably thinking, perception and motivation. Young adults who are diagnosed with psychotic disorders tend to struggle with everyday life activities and are frequently impacted at school, at the workplace and interpersonally on a regular basis. Two common psychotic disorders that we treat at The Dorm are schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder – both conditions that usually first appear when a person is their late teens, 20s, or 30s.

Individuals and young adults who struggle with psychotic disorders may find it difficult to make sound judgments, respond and think clearly, communicate effectively and process and understand reality. Some young people with a psychotic disorder may exhibit a loss of interest in their personal hygiene, will withdraw socially, exhibit slower, unusual movements and exhibit a detached emotional state that is incoherent and distant.

Many young people suffering from a psychotic disorder experience delusions and hallucinations.

  • Delusions are defined as strong-held beliefs and ideas that others can see as false.
  • Hallucinations will encompass someone seeing, hearing, or feeling things that do not exist such as voices, odd smells, or non-existent sensations.
