Psychosis - Who
Who is at risk of experiencing psychosis?
Anyone can experience a psychotic illness. However some groups are more likely to experience psychosis than others. As mentioned above, black people are more likely to be affected than white people.
You are more likely to have a first episode of psychosis when you are younger. Men and women are affected equally, however.
The average age for first experiencing psychosis is younger in men, often in their teens and early 20s. Women who develop psychosis are more likely to do so in their early 20s.
