In the US, a study from the University of Washington found that those with a history of depression, panic attacks and PTSD had twice the odds of developing schizophrenia and double the odds for developing schizophrenia without having had a psychiatric disorder.

A separate study from Harvard University found that people who had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder had three times the risk of developing psychosis and quadruple the risk for developing psychosis without a psychiatric condition.

In Australia, the research published in The Lancet Psychiatry in March found that young people who were diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder were three times more likely to develop schizophrenia and three times as likely to have had a psychotic episode, compared to people who didn’t have a mental health condition.

According to the US National Center for Health Statistics, about half of all US adults have been diagnosed as having a mental illness.

About 16.5 per cent of people with a psychiatric diagnosis have been found to have an episode of psychosis.

A new study published in the Lancet Psychiatry found that the most common diagnosis for psychosis in Australian children and adolescents is schizophrenia.

It also found that one in 10 Australian children are living with mental illness, and one in five children have experienced a psychotic break or episode.

The research was based on the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R), which collects information from nearly a million children in the US and the UK and is a nationally representative survey of over 2.4 million Australians.

It found that children with schizophrenia were three to five times more than those without the illness, with the majority of children who had a diagnosis of psychosis or schizophrenia being boys and females aged between 12 and 17.

The study also found a higher prevalence of severe mental illness among boys than girls, with one in seven boys aged 12 to 17 having a diagnosis, compared with one of six girls.

“The fact that we found a gender difference in the risk is of particular concern because it suggests that children are more likely than their peers to have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and psychosis,” Professor Daniel Jansson, lead author of the study from Sydney University, said in a statement.

Professor Jansson said that the study’s findings were significant because they suggest that schizophrenia is a common condition among young people.

“It’s very likely that the children who have had schizophrenia are more vulnerable to develop the illness in their later life,” he said.

The study found that, in the UK, boys with a diagnosis were three or four times more often than their non-diagnosed peers to be living with psychosis.”

The prevalence of psychotic symptoms among boys is three to four times higher than the prevalence among girls, and the risk increases substantially with age.”

The study found that, in the UK, boys with a diagnosis were three or four times more often than their non-diagnosed peers to be living with psychosis.

Dr Ravi Sharma, a paediatrician at the University Hospital of South Australia who led the study, said it was not surprising that there were differences in the prevalence of schizophrenia and psychotic disorders.

“Schizophrenia is a condition that occurs in people with mental health issues.

It’s a risk factor for psychosis and psychosis disorders,” Dr Sharma said.”

However, it is also an individual’s own risk factor and it is not a risk that is shared by other people, and it also does not correlate with one another.”

Dr Sharma said it would be interesting to find out whether the risk factors were linked to differences in mental health and wellbeing.

“I would like to see a more detailed analysis of the population to see if there are different risk factors or if there is some association between risk factors and illness,” he told ABC News.

Dr Sharma added that more research needed to be done to understand how schizophrenia affects different parts of the brain, such as the prefrontal cortex, the thalamus and the amygdala, which are responsible for controlling emotions.

“One of the important things is to know how schizophrenia is different to other mental illnesses, to understand why this is the case,” he added.

“What’s happening is that we’re not understanding what the brain is doing.”
