Hallucination : a frequent but underrated experience
Hallucinations are frequent experiences in youth but their presence is not synonymous with schizophrenia. Such experiences can be observed in a large range of disorders (e.g. psychiatric, neurological, metabolic, genetic, etc.), but also be fully benign.
As for the non-detection of a persistent disorder, inadequate care of early-onset hallucinations may have deleterious consequences in terms of cognitive and social functioning.
The challenge is to better detect and explore early-onset hallucinations.
