I have a friend that I suspect has a delusional disorder. He is very intelligent and functional most of the time, but has episodes where he thinks people are following him or talking about him. I don't know how to help. I live in Scotland and am willing to try and get him help, but don't know how to locate a professional or start the process. Please help me.
I am not sure how the NHS works in Scoltand, and have not been able to find helpful information online. I would be willing to pay for a psycharist, but again, I struggle to know which one to pick. I would personally like to visit a physarist, to get insight on what I can do to help but not sure how to find one online.
I was dating this guys for a couple months until recently when he told me about this. I know that I cannot continue the relationship, but I don't know how I can help him.

Hi. Sometimes, finding the right Expert can take a little longer than expected and we thank you greatly for your understanding. We’ll be in touch again shortly:-)
Thanks for your answer. I think the links will be helpful. Is there any other advice you can provide me in how to approach this friend, what I can do that might help and what I should try not to do that might make things worse?
I have already realized that being in public places causes a lot of anxiety, so that is to be avoided. Anything else you would recommend?
