- Putting yourself under more stress than you need to
- Isolating yourself, avoiding friends and not talking to others
- Getting involved in negative relationships – where there is a lot of negative comments and criticism
- Using too much alcohol and using drugs such as speed, LSD, ecstasy, cocaine and cannabis that can delay recovery and encourage relapse in psychosis
Remember these are just a few general tips. Everyone who develops a psychosis will find many things that are helpful and unhelpful and should look to develop lists of their own.
