Authors’ reply: We do not want our
finding of a sixfold increase in reporting
five or more violent incidents in persons
with psychosis to give a misleading impression
regarding the association of violence
with mental illness. This was the only finding
suggesting increased risk and means
that there is a small subgroup of people
with psychosis who are repeatedly violent.
The real message of our paper should have
been that the true risks of violence from
people with psychosis, at the population
level, are exceedingly small.
