Purpose: This article aims to describe distinct vulnerabilities to the psychosocial stress from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) on individuals with psychosis and provide practical ways to reduce the vulnerabilities. Conclusion: Societal changes and stress have come in the wake of the COVID-19. Individuals with psychosis are more susceptible to stress, cognitive biases, and lack social support. Practitioners working with individuals with psychosis are in a unique position to offer ways to reduce risk. Practice Implications: Care during the pandemic requires practitioners to pay particular attention to magnified risk factors to individuals with psychosis and create a plan to offer adjunct support.
