Bipolar Disorder and Psychosis

Severe depression or mania may be accompanied by symptoms of psychosis. These symptoms include:
 
  • Hallucinations (hearing, seeing, or otherwise sensing the presence of stimuli that are not there)
  • Delusions (false personal beliefs that are not subject to reason or contradictory evidence and are not explained by a person's cultural concepts).
     
Psychotic symptoms associated with bipolar disorder typically reflect the extreme mood state at the time.
