    That depends on the person and their coping abilities.

    death, an accident, a handicap, bullying, abuse, rape... most of these are a little more severe, but it is so variable I don't think it's predictable.

    There is some guy I read about on yahoo recently, he made a movie that was well received and the sudden attention of the press supposedly pushed him into a brief psychotic disorder, and he was hospitalized. It was thought he would recover and he was not medicated at the hospital. And of course we have all heard about new mothers who have post-parnum psychotic reactions.
