Best Answer

schizophrenia is an actual "mental disorder" where one has trouble telling the difference between whats real and whats not real....... where psychosis is not a mental disorder, but rather delusions where people loose contact with reality. (close in Dx, but far a part)

Best Answer

Psychosis is not a mental health disorder per se. People experience psychosis in the course of psychotic-ba<x>sed disorders such as schizophrenia. People may confuse psychosis with the diagnosis psychotic disorder not otherwise specified (NOS). Psychotic disorder NOS is a generalized disorder given to individuals who have experienced a psychotic episode but don’t meet any other criteria for other psychotic-ba<x>sed disorders such as schizophrenia. One cannot receive a diagnosis of psychosis but they could be diagnosed as having schizophrenia. <br />
<br />
If someone experiences psychosis they have a break with reality. A psychotic episode (a phrase used interchangeably with psychosis) includes symptoms such as hearing voices, believing in things that are not real despite evidence to the contrary (delusions) and paranoia. To be diagnosed with schizophrenia, an individual must have experienced more than one psychotic episode, along with other symptoms, within a six-month period.
