Risk factors and antecedents

Schizophrenia is a complex disorder and has been associated with many causative factors. With a heritability estimate around 80%, schizophrenia has a strong genetic component and this is reflected in the large number of genes that have been associated with the disorder. At present, the library does not include information on specific genes, but does provide general genetic information, information on family heritability, and the environmental risk factors that have been associated with the disorder. We also include information on the antecedents of schizophrenia, which are potentially very early signs of the disorder.
