Psychosis is a symptom of serious mental illness that is usually associated with adult life, but a significant group of people develop it in adolescence. Psychosis in adolescence is more complicated than in adults because of the young person’s maturity level and personality development. It has an impact on psychosocial functioning, cognitive development and quality of life. Early intervention is vital to recovery and empowerment is a key factor in the process. The adolescent’s ability to engage with empowerment is influenced by factors such as coping, decision-making skills and effective communication.
