Scenario When Julia hasn’t slept for a couple of nights she becomes quite restless and often starts ‘talking to herself.’ Usually this is only quietly in her own room but at times she begins shouting and becomes agitated. When asked who she is talking to Julia becomes upset and says it is the man who is following her and attempting to hurt her. She believes he is a ‘dark lord from Satan.’ - Schizophrenia

Peter is 28 years old and has experienced mental health problems for the last ten years. Peter takes the medication prescribed for his mental health problems regularly. This helps with the odd beliefs he used to have about being a local ruler and landlord and he no longer worries about this. However he spends a lot of time in bed and does not help the rest of the family look after the house and garden. He does not wash himself very often and seems to find it difficult to do anything – he always seems to walk very slowly.

He goes pale and goes to lie down. About half an hour later he will get up and once again seems okay until someone asks him to go out again when the same thing happens again.
