This is a screening tool designed to help identify whether you might be experiencing symptoms of psychosis. Psychosis is a condition where there is some loss of contact with reality. The experience of psychosis varies from person to person and may include seeing, hearing, feeling smelling, or tasting things that are not really there. Another symptom is an unshakeable false belief in something that is impossible or unbelievably strange. The experience could also include extreme worry that someone is out to harm them when it's not true. This quiz does not consider all symptoms or the possible reasons why a person might be experiencing them. This tool is not designed to provide a diagnosis. Only a professional can make a diagnosis.
This scale was designed for people 17 and older, if you are under 17 your results may be less accurate. This screening is not perfect and we advise you to take action and seek help if you are distressed. In this questionnaire we ask about a range of experiences, some of which are quite unusual. Please carefully read each statement and decide if your answer is "yes," "no," or “unsure.”
