Follow me on:

In addition to the PTSD symptoms of re-experiencing, avoidance, and hyperarousal, people with PTSD are also more likely to experience psychotic symptoms as compared to people without PTSD. In particular, people with PTSD have been found to experience more of the "positive symptoms" of psychosis. These include such experiences as hearing voices or seeing things that other people cannot see. You can learn more about the relationship between PTSD and the positive symptoms of psychosis, as well as how they are connected, here.
