its basically where you have psychosis but its cause when you are depressed for several years and medicine hasnt worked
your mood becomes effected

Psychotic depression happens to people who doesnt have schizophrenia. Its when a person due depression problems get some psychotic symptoms.

In basic words: you can handle depression, cant cope, and your brain snaps, and you feel and get overly crazy. Your brain cant find a way out, so as a coping mechanism to avoid the pain you just get crazy. Anger and sadnes acumulates and then you emotionally explode.

Or, you cant handle stress, you are full of negative thoughts, and your brain play tricks on you, like hearing things, magical thinking, paranoia, strange thoughts, etc.
