Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Thank you for your question. Before providing suggestions, I have a few questions for you about your son's symptoms. Please tell me more about what psychotic symptoms he has experienced. What was going on in his life last year when he had his psychotic break? Is there family history of schizophrenia or any other mental illness?
I am experiencing some technical difficulties so please reply whenever you can. I will here for another 2 hours.
