As the name suggests, brief psychotic disorder is a psychiatric condition that appears all of sudden, yet lasts for a short-term. It can be for a period of 30 days or less, sometimes for even a day. While these temporary symptoms don't indicate the existence of a chronic mental health condition, they may be, in some cases, severe enough to lead a person to suicide. Generally, brief psychotic disorder-related cases occur when individuals are in their 20's or 30's.
SymptomsA person with this condition may exhibit some, or all, of the following symptoms:
