A team of Monash University researchers has released the findings of a study, which indicates child sexual abuse may be a trigger for the onset of psychotic illness later in life.

The study suggested that children, who were sexually abused, appeared to be at higher risk of developing schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders. The research was led by Margaret Cutajar and included research by Professor Paul Mullen, Professor James Ogloff, Dr Stuart Thomas, Associate Professor David Wells and Josie Spataro. The findings of the study were reported in the November issue of  Archives of General Psychiatry, one of the JAMA/Archives journals.
