Dr. Pamela Pappas answered

Yes: Delusions of grandeur can be part of several mental disorders, such as mania, schizophrenia, and schizoaffective disorder. Delusions are fixed, false beliefs that do not budge even when confronted with contradicting information. So, these show lack of reality contact -- a cardinal sign of mental disorder.
