Psychosis Treatment

At Into the Light, we recognize that living with psychosis can be an incredibly challenging and disorienting experience. Our devoted team is here to provide effective psychosis treatment and support for men seeking to regain control of their mental health and lead fulfilling lives.

Understanding Psychosis

Psychosis is a mental health condition characterized by a disconnection from reality, affecting thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. It’s crucial to note that psychosis can be a symptom of various mental health disorders rather than a disorder itself. Early intervention and specialized treatment can make a significant difference in managing psychosis and improving overall well-being. While psychosis can affect individuals of any gender, it is important to recognize the specific challenges and considerations for men who experience psychosis:

Onset and Prevalence

Psychotic disorders like schizophrenia typically have an onset in late adolescence or early adulthood, which is a critical period in a man’s life when pursuing education, career, and relationships. This can significantly impact these life areas.

Stigma and Help-Seeking

Stigma surrounding mental illness can be a barrier for men to seek help. Societal expectations of masculinity may discourage them from acknowledging and addressing their mental health concerns.

Co-Occurring Issues

Psychosis in men may co-occur with substance abuse, which can complicate diagnosis and treatment. Addressing both issues simultaneously is crucial for effective care.

Violence and Aggression

While individuals with psychosis are not inherently violent, some men may exhibit aggressive behaviors due to their condition. It is essential to provide support and treatment to manage such behaviors safely.


Treatment for psychosis often involves a combination of antipsychotic medications and psychotherapy. Engaging men in treatment and therapy can be challenging but is crucial for long-term recovery.

Support Networks

Building a strong support network of family, friends, and mental health professionals is important in helping men with psychosis manage their condition and prevent relapse.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

Focusing on rehabilitation and recovery is a key aspect of treatment. This may include vocational training, social skills development, and psychoeducation to improve daily functioning and quality of life.

It’s important to approach psychosis in men with empathy and without judgment. Early intervention, access to appropriate treatment, and a supportive environment can make a significant difference in managing the condition and improving the quality of life for individuals living with psychosis.

What are

Symptoms of Psychosis?

Common symptoms of psychosis include:


Strongly held false beliefs that are not based in reality, often paranoid, grandiose, or persecutory in nature. For example, believing you have special powers or that you are being plotted against.


Sensory perceptions without external stimuli, such as hearing voices, seeing things, or feeling sensations that others do not experience.

Disorganized Thinking

Difficulty organizing thoughts and making logical connections, leading to incoherent speech, rapid or jumbled thoughts, or using unrelated words.

Disorganized or Abnormal Motor Behavior

Unusual or unpredictable movements, agitation, repetitive motions, or catatonia (lack of movement or response).

Negative Symptoms

Reduced or absence of normal functioning or behaviors, such as reduced emotional expression, lack of motivation, decreased speech output, or difficulty initiating and sustaining activities.

Cognitive Impairment

Challenges with attention, memory, and executive functions, making it difficult to plan, organize, or focus on tasks.

Emotional Dysregulation

Difficulty in managing and expressing emotions appropriately, resulting in inappropriate emotional responses or severe mood swings.

Deterioration in Daily Functioning

Decline in daily activities such as hygiene, self-care, work, or school due to cognitive and emotional challenges.
