Brief psychotic disorder is a sudden, short-term display of psychotic behavior, such as hallucinations or delusions, which occurs with a stressful event.

Causes

Brief psychotic disorder is triggered by extreme stress, such as a traumatic accident or loss of a loved one. It is followed by a return to the previous level of function. The person may or may not be aware of the strange behavior.

This condition most often affects people in their 20s, 30s, and 40s. Those who have personality disorders are at high risk of having a brief reactive psychosis.

Symptoms

Disorganized behavior
False ideas about what is taking place (delusions)
Hearing or seeing things that aren’t real (hallucinations)
Strange speech or language
The symptoms are not due to alcohol or other drug abuse and they last longer than a day, but less than a month.

Brief psychotic disorder is a period of psychosis whose duration is generally shorter, non re-occurring, and not caused by another condition.

Symptoms generally last at least a day, but not more than a month, and there is an eventual return to full baseline functioning.

There are three forms of brief psychotic disorder:

1. Brief psychotic disorder with a stressor, such as a trauma or death in the family.

2. Brief psychotic disorder without a stressor, there is no obvious stressor.

3. Brief psychotic disorder with postpartum onset. Usually occurs about four weeks after giving birth.
