Young Adult, Psychotic Disorders



• Social situations can have a significant impact on young people’s mood and mental experiences.

• More specifically, we want to know how someone’s perceived social influence in social situations relates to their mood and psychotic symptoms.

• Past studies have found connections between lower perceived social status (rank, comparison, and related concepts) and psychotic symptoms anxiety, depression, and other mood related psychopathology.

• We use experience sampling methods to capture moment-to-moment changes in mood and psychotic symptoms in a variety of social settings.
