Brief Psychotic Disorder has a sudden onset (within 2 weeks). By definition, there must be a full recovery within 1 month of the onset of the psychosis. The duration of the psychotic symptoms sometimes is only a few days. The average age of onset is in the mid 30s, but onset can occur across the lifespan.
