Tips for Handling a Schizophrenia Crisis

  • Remember that you cannot reason with acute psychosis
  • Remember that the person may be terrified by his/her own feelings of loss of control
  • Do not express irritation or anger
  • Do not shout
  • Do not use sarcasm as a weapon
  • Decrease distractions (turn off the TV, radio, fluorescent lights that hum, etc.)
  • Ask any casual visitors to leave—the fewer people the better

  • Avoid touching the person
  • Sit down and ask the person to sit down also
