Psychosis? Yes, You Are Entitled to Disability Benefits!

Psychosis involves a state of being out of touch with reality where reality is replaced by severe delusions and hallucinations. People suffering from psychosis are said to be psychotic. Diagnosing and defining psychosis can be quite difficult, thus there are no hard and fast rules. Instead criteria for diagnosis vary from one case to the next as an experienced professional decides whether the person’s state is a mental disability or not. That said, at times some cases can be quite straightforward with clear physical damage to the brain (through perhaps a tumor or substance abuse). Sleep deprivation and manic depression are also seen as possible causes to this condition.
