The goal for this text is to emphasize that treatment of psychosis must be tailored to the needs of individual patients. While a given diagnosis may suggest principle mechanisms under prescription guidelines, standard treatment of psychosis is unfeasible due to no two patients suffering from an identical illness. This text therefore aims to contrast the one-size-fits-all treatment that general medicine has taken for granted, and instead focuses on building psychiatrist and patient relationships to foster individual treatment plans.
