I am trying to find out more about what triggers schizophrenic episodes, because a friend of mine suffers from the illness and has had maybe five schizophrenic episodes in total. He just lost his job, and then decided he could handle himself without medication. Now, he's needed to check in to a mental health clinic. So can the loss of a job trigger schizophrenia?

In this case, just from your short story about what happened to your friend, I think there is a very apparent link between the two events. However, technically, your friend's job loss did not trigger the schizophrenic episode but rather the decision on his part to come off meds. This is a common cycle in people with schizophrenia.
