My research topic will be on understanding schizophrenia among men and women, and who is more likely to develop it. Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves (Schizophrenia,2020). People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality, which causes significant distress for the individual their family members, and friends. If this is left untreated the symptoms of schizophrenia can be persistent and disabling. Research suggests that schizophrenia can be caused by physical, genetic, psychological, and environmental factors. Some people may be prone to schizophrenia and a stressful, or emotional life event might trigger a psychotic episode.

My hypothesis is “if women are more vulnerable to stressors throughout life, then their more likely to develop schizophrenia than men. I believe that women go through more things in life than men that can be stressful or even emotional. In my opinion, the main cause of such things could be childbirth, miscarriage, being kidnapped, and domestic violence along with other things that could result in a triggered experience. Moreover, as this disorder can be genetic, which increases the chances of risk, however, depends on the mother’s gene and the environment in which the mom is in while the child is in her womb (OrignialNews,2019).
