2. Impact of psychosis on families


Stages of grief



At this stage of grief, you are continuing to absorb the diagnosis and may experience an outpouring of emotion.

You may say:

“This shouldn’t be happening. Why is it happening to us?”

“Why is this happening to me?”

“He has wrecked my life.”

“I hate her for what she is doing to our family.”
