What is Paranoia?

Paranoia is a breakdown of a person’s various mental and emotional functions related to reasoning and assigning meaning. It is marked by unreasonable beliefs often to do with either persecution or grandeur (Mental Health America 2019; Dementia Australia n.d.)

People who have paranoia will often experience intense anxious, fearful or delusional ideation relating to a supposed threat or harm (Healthdirect 2018).

Paranoia is most commonly seen in people who have psychotic disorders. When a person has paranoia, it is hard or impossible to convince them that they are being or behaving irrationally. Beliefs become fixed and unshakable (Mental Health America 2019).
