In brief: Currently unknown

It is currently unknown what causes schizophrenia.
As of now there is no known psychiatric or neurological symptoms in otherwise normal adults from folate (folic acid) deficiency other than anemia. B12 deficiency has been known for a long time to cause cognitive problems but not folate (folic acid)
