hallucination is a perception of something that is not
really there. It can involve sight, hearing, taste, smell, and/or touch. For
example, you may hear voices that nobody else hears or see something that
nobody else sees.
You probably will know if a person is having a
hallucination. It may scare you, because you can't see why the person is
behaving as he or she is. The person also may be very scared.
Remain calm, and try to help the person:
