On the other hand, our screening detected patients who later developed other severe psychopathology. This suggests that the at-risk group may develop multiple severe illnesses besides psychotic disorders, and it offered us the opportunity to destigmatize mental illness for them. We tell our at-risk patients that they rightly sought help because of a risk for developing severe mental illness in the future. We never mention psychosis because we have found the at-risk group to be very sensitive to the notion of psychotic syndromes. In therapy we explain how dopamine sensitization affects perception, cognitive biases, and affect, and we find that patients are less distressed by their symptoms after receiving this information.
