Psychosis is a rare phenomenon among school-aged children but is perhaps the most critical of mental conditions for early identification and intervention. Because of the lack of public awareness about psychosis, in general, and especially in children, school-based practitioners may be the first to be aware of the changes in a child’s behavior that reflect the possibility of psychosis. This chapter focuses on ways to identify childhood psychosis, the various causes of childhood psychosis, medical treatment, and school-based supportive interventions that may assist children and families in managing this potentially life-threatening situation.

Keywords:   psychosis, school-aged children, school-based intervention, schizophrenia
