Brief Reactive Psychosis
March 21, 2012 by staff
Brief Reactive Psychosis, Invisible Children co-founder Jason Russell, the creator of the viral “Kony 2012″ video who was taken to a medical facility after allegedly running around n*ked in public (and, according to some reports, masturbating) in San Diego last week, has been preliminarily diagnosed with “brief reactive psychosis,” according to news reports.
The Los Angeles Times reported that Russell, 33, is undergoing medical treatment.
According to Russell’s family’s statement, published on Gawker, brief reactive psychosis is “an acute state brought on by the extreme exhaustion, stress and dehydration.”
Though new to us, the doctors say this is a common experience given the great mental, emotional and physical shock his body has gone through in these last two weeks. Even for us, it’s hard to understand the sudden transition from relative anonymity to worldwide attention – both raves and ridicules, in a matter of days.
