It has been a year since one of the best people that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing passed away. He was strong, intelligent, caring, and honest. I had the honor of calling him Daddy. I will miss both my parents for as long as I live. I hope that I can be even half as good of a spouse, parent, and friend as the two of them were. Life is now forever changed for me. It will never be like it was. That doesn't mean it will all be bad, it will just be different.

That's different from the half-life time period (where afterwards you will experience withdrawal symptoms) - as well as the anti-psychotic properties that may take longer to wear off because it takes longer to produce the effect.
Half-life is very med specific and cannot really be generalized.
Mostly, my opinion would be that unless the half-life is rather short, missing one dose would not affect the ability for it to keep away psychosis so long as you take the next dose.
