Psychosis can involve seeing or hearing things that other people don't (hallucinations) and developing beliefs that aren't based on reality (delusions), which can be highly distressing.

Cases of psychosis have soared over the past two years in England as an increasing number of people experience hallucinations and delusional thinking amid the stresses of the Covid-19 pandemic.

There was a 75% increase in the number of people referred to mental health services for their first suspected episode of psychosis between April 2019 and April 2021, NHS data shows.

The rise continued throughout the summer, with 12,655 referred in July 2021, up 53% from 8,252 in July 2019.

Much of the increase has been seen over the last year, after the first national lockdown, according to data analysed by the charity Rethink Mental Illness. More than 13,000 referrals were made in May 2021, a 70% rise on the May before when there were 7,813 referrals.

The charity is urging the government to invest more in early intervention for psychosis to prevent further deterioration in people's mental health from which it could take them years to recover.

It says the statistics provide some of the first concrete evidence to indicate the significant levels of distress experienced across the population during the pandemic.

A study earlier this month found that anxiety and depression around the world increased dramatically in 2020, with an estimated 76m extra cases of anxiety and 53m extra cases of major depressive disorder than would have been expected had Covid not struck. Women and young people were disproportionately affected, the researchers said.


Comment: It's rather insidious that journalists continue to blame 'Covid' when it's clear that the lockdowns are the primary cause.


Psychosis can involve seeing or hearing things that other people do not (hallucinations) and developing beliefs that are not based on reality (delusions), which can be highly distressing. It can be a symptom of mental illness such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder or severe depression, but psychosis can also be a one-off, potentially triggered by a traumatic experience, extreme stress or drug and alcohol misuse.


Comment: Going off the above definition, nearly half of the planet is suffering from government crafted delusions regarding the coronavirus and the experimental vaccines - to name but a few of the beliefs currently held by people that are at odds with reality.

Note also that over the last 2 years have been we've seen a rise mental illness in both children and adults, as well as a 20% increase in deaths from alcohol abuse.


Despite the continued pressure on mental health services, Rethink Mental Illness is highlighting the importance of rapid access to treatment to prevent further episodes of psychosis and reduce people's risk of developing severe mental illness.


Comment: Note they're not asking for the lockdowns to be stopped just the ability to treat more people: Psychologists accuse UK government of using 'unethical' fear tactics on people to enforce lockdown


Nice guidelines for people experiencing a suspected first episode of psychosis state they should receive an assessment within two weeks. However, the charity fears that if the increase in referrals is sustained, more people will have to wait longer for vital treatment.

Brian Dow, the deputy chief executive of Rethink Mental Illness, said: "Psychosis can have a devastating impact on people's lives. Swift access to treatment is vital to prevent further deterioration in people's mental health which could take them years to recover from.

"These soaring numbers of suspected first episodes of psychosis are cause for alarm. We are now well beyond the first profound shocks of this crisis, and it's deeply concerning that the number of referrals remains so high. As first presentations of psychosis typically occur in young adults, this steep rise raises additional concerns about the pressures the younger generation have faced during the pandemic.


Comment: One would expect that the very young children who've suffered isolation and endless fear mongering will be even more susceptible to mental illness than those who grew up during 'peacetime'.


"The pandemic has had a gamechanging effect on our mental health and it requires a revolutionary response. Dedicated additional funding for mental health and social care must go to frontline services to help meet the new demand, otherwise thousands of people could bear a catastrophic cost."

A spokesperson for the Department of Health and Social Care said: "It is vital everyone can get the right support when they need it and we are delivering the fastest expansion in mental health services in NHS history, backed by an additional £2.3bn a year by 2023/24, benefiting hundreds of thousands more people.

"On top of this, we've invested an additional £500m this year to help people whose mental health has been particularly impacted by the pandemic. All NHS mental health providers have established 24/7 urgent helplines, which have answered around three million calls during the pandemic."

'My head told me to deal with hearing voices'

Tom Dunning, 30, has a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder, social anxiety disorder and PTSD.

"I was about 22 or 23 when I first started experiencing symptoms of psychosis. It was pretty much overnight having after finishing my degree that my head told me to deal with hearing voices. Hearing them was a daily occurrence and it pretty much made me feel scared of myself because I didn't think anything was wrong so I couldn't tell anyone how I felt.

"I had experienced bullying in my childhood and now I felt like my own mental health was bullying me by the voices telling me to do things. Everyone around me started to notice differences and knew something was wrong but I was scared to acknowledge that. I eventually saw my GP and it was the first time that I thought I needed support but it was also the first time that I knew it was something I could get through."


Comment: Obviously the longer this goes on, the worse the situation will become, however one wonders whether there are other factors contributing to the surge in psychosis cases other than lockdowns; it's particularly curious that this year has seen the most significant rise: RNA Vaccines, Obedience and Eugenics
