Social factors may play an etiologic role in the development of schizophrenia. A common denominator may be chronic experiences of social defeat and (or) exclusion, resulting in dopamine dysregulation or sensitization. The implementation of interventions and preventive strategies.

Stress and Social Adversity: Social adversity may lead to stress, and stress is a factor related to onset, severity, and expression of schizophrenia.

This means that stress exacerbates schizophrenia symptoms, and may increase psychotic episodes.
