School moves related to psychotic-like symptoms

February 20, 2014 9:10 am

Researchers have found that children who have repeatedly changed schools may be likelier to develop psychotic-like symptoms as young teenagers. In a study of 6,448 children by scientists led by Prof Swaran Singh, at the University of Warwick, kids who had moved schools thrice or more before they turned 12 were 60% likelier to develop at least one psychotic symptom as young teenagers. Psychotic traits included hallucinations and delusions, and could be a precursor to psychotic disorders.
