What causes psychosis?

This may be of interest to some. In Castlebar next Monday. I am involved but it's a free and we think worthwhile chance to see a very well renowned speaker so thats ok mods. About 3/4 of the tickets gone so far.

It's a start but from the paperwork still seems Pharma heavy.
"In first episode schizophrenia, antipsychotic recommended for 3 years to reduce the risk of relapse"
This is not borne out by any studies that I know of?
