Social contacts with other individuals are essential for all persons. These can involve familial ties, friendships or partnerships, but also only loose contacts as with neighbours, fellow workers and sports fans.
If one suffers from a psychological illness, one occasionally feels as if one is unable to undergo any type of social contact.
Nevertheless, you must learn once again, as quickly as possible, to initiate human relationships and to take care of them. This is all the more important because regular social contacts for persons with psychoses result in fewer psychotic symptoms, a lower frequency of depression and in a better quality of life.
