This learning module explores developments in understanding psychosis and the progress that has been made in finding effective treatments for psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions. Mortality rates from unnatural causes such as suicide are higher in people with the range of mental health problems that characterise psychosis, but premature deaths are primarily due to treatable physical health problems such as cardiovascular disease. This module therefore discusses interventions to enhance the mental and physical health of this population.
