Is there any problem to work who went to psychosis earlier

Hi there, My nephew smoked cannabis at the age of 15 and went into psychosis and came out of it without medication and was perfectly fine for 3 years. Then when he reached the age of 18 he briefly experimented again with cannabis and the same symptoms happened, he came out of the psychosis again quite quickly without the aid of medication, he has promised never to do this again as he would like to train to become as an electrician, would this be wise for him to choose this career path? Kindest regards, Julia

Psychosis? What do you mean? Schizophrenia? Paranoia?

Hi Julia,
Your nephew's problem is a common problem seen in teens betweene 15 to 20 years. During this period, these boys explore and land up in addictions. You should take help from a good clinical psychologist to resolve this problem. Choosing to train as an electrician will
not pose any problem. So, do not worry. Encourage and motivate him to busy himselv
es on pursuing his dreams. Follow the advice of your clinical psycologist.
Feel free to ask any additional queries.
Wish you and your nephew good health.
