While it is  not unusual for acute mental illness  sufferers  to report similar delusions , it is unusual for  the pattern to change  so suddenly and be so widespread. The most disturbing observation is the reports of acute psychosis has tripled since this same time last year.

Often times a patient with an acute mental illness such as a psychosis  will speak of religious delusions . This is thought to because the use of religion in their recovery or upbringing.  Religion and associated ideas and imagery  are suspected to trigger psychosis  in certain cases since it meant to be awe-inspiring, mystical and preternatural.

In trying to determine the cause of so many cases of acute psychosis this year we  looked at a large sample of  new sufferers and  directed our attention to workings of the brain itself. It was surprising to find that almost every case the patients brainwaves were alternating very quickly between Beta and Delta.  We are unable to determine the cause and similarly  their delusional complaints focus on shadow people.

Delusions of shadow people is nothing new.  Methamphetamine addicts  whose use cause them acute psychosis often speak of shadow people.

There is new fad of sorts that might account for the increase cases and it is use of a device called  Bad Dreaming by those who use it recreationally. The technical terminology is Beta Delta Alternating inducement pulsing.  The device is put to the forehead and causes the brain alternate between Beta and Delta brainwaves.  This is a very dangerous fad as it can, indeed, trigger psychosis.

Anytime we see a major change in the pattern of mental health issues across society it has to be studied  carefully to determine  if there is an underlying cause that can be addressed instead of treating each sufferer individually.
