(Aspect 3) 4. Child, physical, sexual and bullyig has lead to increase in psychosis. These people are three times more at a risk of becoming psychotic as an adult. Another study showed that those that were sexually abused as children are ten times as likely to hallucinate.

(Aspect 3) 5. Early trauma increases the risks of becoming psychotic, but this doesn't mean you will automatically become psychotic if you had a traumatic experience as a child. Also, not everyone that has psychoctic experiences was abused as a child. Psychologists and psychiatrists can't just assume that someone that is psychotic was abused. They talk to the patient and get to know them before making a diagnosis.
