My friend has been acting very strangely, on and off, for years. Some examples, he thinks people are trying to find him, kidnap him, rape him, burn him, murder him, etc. He thinks all of his house has been bugged, that there's a group of people worldwide trying to destroy his life, he's seeing things that most people see as coincidences as linked events. He has been diagnosed with bi-polar, and was sectioned last year and diagnosed with psychosis. But he seems to have forgotten this, or doesn't believe it. He thinks he is perfectly sane. He won't get help. He's pushed every single one of his friends away. Same for his family. He is completely alone in a council house with his delusions and paranoias of death and destruction.
How do I begin to help a person like this? I care for him a lot, but it's wearing me down dealing with this all on my own. I don't know what to do.
How to help someone with potential psychosis?
