Brief psychotic disorder is actually more common among people who are new to new cultures. In these cases the brain may simply be overwhelmed with totally foreign information and data and have difficulty handling the transition. This is not like some of the more progressive psychiatric diseases that cause gradual cognitive deficits after recovery and with support the person should go on to live a full and productive life.
