Background: Currently early psychosis has become crucial issue for mental health in most countries. Resilience can be considered as psychologically important protective factor against early psychosis and other negative psychiatric symptoms. Objective: this study investigated the incidence of high-risk group for early psychosis and the correlation between early psychosis and psychological resilience of high-risk Korean adolescents. Results: Early psychosis was negatively correlated with optimism and self-efficacy (mastery scale of resiliency) and trust and comfort (relatedness scale of resiliency), but positively correlated with impairment and sensitivity (emotional reactivity scale of resiliency). Also Self-efficacy and comfort predicted negatively early psychosis factors, but impairment and sensitivity positively did them. Conclusion: Special cautions and strategies can be needed to increase self-efficacy and comfort, while to decrease sensitivity and impairment for mental health of Korean adolescents.
