2. Impact of psychosis on families


Common stressors

Financial worries

You may experience financial concerns if you have a relative with mental health problems. A family member’s symptoms may result in changes in employment because they may be unable to work. In addition, the entire family may experience financial strain if you cannot leave your relative alone and you miss work. Financial worries can cause emotional strain.
