Psychosis and Manic Depression

Severe depression or mania may be accompanied by symptoms of psychosis. These symptoms include:
  • Hallucinations (hearing, seeing, or otherwise sensing things that are not there)
  • Delusions (false personal beliefs that are not subject to reason or contradictory evidence and are not explained by a person's cultural concepts).
Psychotic symptoms associated with manic depression typically reflect the extreme mood state at the time.
