While they are a dubious measure of spatial variations in the effectiveness of health care provision, rates of readmission do reflect areal differences in the degree to which hospital admission occurs in the management of schizophrenia. Areal analysis involving census data can help to identify the causal factors responsible, but the examination of case notes is a necessary extension. In Plymouth such data informed some aspects of the differences between patterns of male and female illness demons...

Throughout his rich and wide-ranging oeuvre, Will Self has been concerned with psychotropic states and the abuse of institutional power; these are often combined in his satiric representations of the psychiatric profession. Recurrent tropes such as metamorphosis, exaggerations of scale, distortions of inner and outer space, the combination of elevated language with the vernacular, and the creative juxtaposition of typically non-fungible spheres of human experience, cumulatively challenge assumpt...

In the early 20th century, there were few therapeutic options for mental illness and asylum numbers were rising. This pessimistic outlook favoured the rise of the eugenics movement. Heredity was assumed to be the principal cause of mental illness. Politicians, scientists and clinicians in North America and Europe called for compulsory sterilisation of the mentally ill. Psychiatric genetic research aimed to prove a Mendelian mode of inheritance as a scientific justification for these measures. Er...

Purpose There is a paucity of data on heritability of psychotic disorders in Africa. The study aimed to investigate morbid risk of schizophrenia and mood disorder among first-degree relatives of schizophrenia probands, compared with mood disorder and healthy controls.

Objective:The authors sought to clarify the relationship between IQ and subsequent risk for schizophrenia.Method:IQ was assessed at ages 18–20 in 1,204,983 Swedish males born between 1951 and 1975. Schizophrenia was assessed by hospital diagnosis through 2010. Cox proportional hazards models were used to investigate future risk for schizophrenia in individuals as a function of their IQ score, and then stratified models using pairs of relatives were used to adjust for familial cluster. Finally, r...

Background People with Prader–Willi syndrome (PWS), a genetically defined developmental disorder, are at increased risk of developing psychotic illness. This is particularly the case for those with a genetic subtype of PWS called maternal uniparental disomy (mUPD), where rates of psychosis are more than 60% by early adult life. Little is known about the long-term course of their disorder. Method Individuals who had had episodes of psychosis or were at increased risk of developing psychosis due t...

Schizophrenia is a devastating psychiatric disorder that affects approximately 1% of the general population. Its complexity and enigmatic etiology place an economic and social burden on public health resources, while causing emotional distress for patients and their families. Twin, family, and adoption studies have shown evidence for a genetic component, but its complex pattern of inheritance has complicated the efforts for identifying susceptibility genes. The discovery of disease causing genes...

Since completion of the mapping of the human genome in early 2000, tremendous progress has been made in the identification of many different genes associated with our health and across diseases. Although social work researchers are not expected to conduct genetic research at the molecular level, it is imperative that we are able to understand the basic genetic findings related to behavioral problems and are able to translate and integrate this information into psychosocial treatment approaches a...
