Anosognosia Mental Illness Screening and Intervention Strategies (ePoster)



An alarming percentage of individuals with severe mental illness lack insight or awareness of their disorders, a symptom known as anosognosia. Due to the obscurity of the symptom of anosognosia, clinicians may misinterpret patients’ thoughts about their diagnosis as being in denial rather than an extension of their disorder, a lack of insight. Misidentifying or inappropriately addressing this key symptom can lead to poor mental health and psychosocial outcomes.

A Toolkit (with presentation) is an ideal way to educate clinicians about a disorder and to share resources. The AMISS Toolkit can serve as a resource for clinicians who are not experts in the complex mental health disorders of their patients.
