One of my close friends , whose family has a history of schizophrenia and bipolar ,has become overly religious of late and is sure of an impending global doom . She is not on any medication .Any idea of what is happening ?

My mom has become extremely religious since she developed psychosis last spring. She said that God had talked to her and that evil spirits were trying to take over her body. After that psychotic episode shes been very religious, read The Bible, prayed and so on. She was nothing like that before.

So i'm not saying that your friend has developed mental health issues, but sudden religiousness and being sure about global doom might indicate some kind of psychosis, especially if she has schizophrenia running in family.
