Question about DepressionDuring depression and experiencing auditory hallucinations, can command hallucinations cause the sufferer to lose self control and do things totally out of character ; even immoral or illegal things?
Sometimes people find command hallucinations too distressing to ignore or distract themselves from. Psychological help and/ or medication can help.
Mental Health Specialist, Psychotherapist
Command hallucinations can result in the sufferer doing dangerous things - in depression we would be particularly concerned that the commands might include harming themselves.
I would recommend urgent treatment.
