2. Impact of psychosis on families


Stages of grief



You may experience emotional pain, such as despair, helplessness and sorrow.

You may say:

“This is horrible. I feel so incredibly sad about this.”

“I am overwhelmed with sadness about my relationship.”

“I feel so depressed. I don’t know if I will ever be happy again.”

“I am so disappointed for my child. She had such potential and is throwing it away.”
