Paranoia is a mental health symptom causing delusions, intrusive thoughts, and fears not entirely based on reality. People experiencing paranoia may believe others are targeting them, stalking them, or trying to steal from them. In some cases, people with paranoia may have an inflated sense of self. Paranoia can manifest in someone with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, but it’s not limited to these mental illnesses. Some people experience paranoia without a mental illness. Others might experience it after a significant life event, such as the birth of a child. 

In this section, you can find articles about paranoia and how it impacts the lives of millions of people worldwide. Knowing the signs of paranoia may help you reach out for support if you live with this symptom.
