Psychosis:

The term Psychosis refers to an abnormal condition of the mind. It is a generic  psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact with reality". Psychosis describes a mental state during which hallucinations, delusions and impaired insight may occur. The term psychosis is very broad and can be apparent in several mental illnesses including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder or in cases of physical brain damage or drug use.
