Is that person going to hurt me?  They are acting really weird. I don’t know what to do.  I’m scared.

Individuals with Schizophrenia may experience psychotic episodes when exposed to extreme stress.  The first occurrence usually doesn’t happen until adulthood. 

This Pandemic is piling on stress in ways we haven’t experienced before.  We are already seeing folks in public experiencing psychosis, with heartbreaking consequences.

How can you minimize the risk of a psychotic episode?  What should you do if you find yourself in the presence of someone in the middle of one?  

We’ve got you taken care of with this week’s special guest, Dale Walsh.
