it’s time we stop acting like psychosis is so scary and psychotic people are evil. we’re more likely to be victims than to victimize.
non-psychotics are encouraged to reblog this btw

My friend has hallucinations but that doesn’t make him dangerous. He’s never hurt me or any of our friend group and I know that he won’t because he’s a good person
I hallucinate and I have delusions. I have psychosis. When I hallucinate or when Im delusional Im scared and confused, or even terrified and crying. But it doesnt make me dangerous, evil, or scary. The only scary stuff from this is that sometimes Ill scream and cry so much from the hallucinations (if they are really super bad) that youll be scared Ill hurt myself accidently. But guess what, that doesnt mean Im dangerous or evil, or that Ill hurt you. It just means that in those situations Im extremely scared and vulnerable person.
I support you, you wonderful humans.
Statistically speaking, people with psychosis are less likely to engage in violent behavior than nuerotypicals.
