Protective factors in Chinese university students at clinical high risk for psychosis

Individuals at high risk for psychosis showed significantly lower self-esteem, social support and resilience compared to healthy controls.

In the high risk group, lower social support and lower self-esteem were associated with more severe positive, negative and depressive symptoms.

Multiple regression analyses revealed that self-esteem was the only significant determinant for negative, depressive symptoms and global functioning.

In addition, we found that subjects who were fully recovered at a 6-month follow-up survey were greater resilient and showed lower depressive symptoms at baseline.

The result implied that resilience intervention could be effective on early prevention of the onset of psychosis.
