Unusual Thoughts & Experiences

Unusual thoughts and behaviours can often be very difficult for families to understand. Common problems may include unusual or paranoid beliefs, hearing voices, problems with thinking and speech, loss of motivation, withdrawing from other people, aggression, and risky behaviour or becoming over-dependent. These symptoms can often be terrifying and may leave people feeling fearful and withdrawn. Rethink.org/factsheets is a good website to visit for more information.
