Inclusion criteria

Males and females aged 16 to 70 having experienced psychotic symptoms for at least the last 2 weeks but current episode no longer than 2 years.
Patients can have a total history of psychosis of longer than 2 years, as long as there has been a period of at least six months of remission prior to the current episode.

What is involved?

They will have a 23 ml (approximately one and half tablespoon) sample of blood taken and a £10 voucher will be given to participants to compensate for their time and inconvenience.
