Can discussing my loved one’s hallucinations help her in any way?

There is sometimes a tendency to become fascinated by the weird world of psychosis, and plenty of time can be wasted thinking about and analyzing the possible meanings of delusions and hallucinations. Sometimes family and friends talk at length with the psychotic individual about their strange perceptions. Unfortunately, there is little to be gained in studying the content of hallucinations. Psychotic disturbances are a sign that the depressed person is extremely sick and needs to be cared for; that’s all.
