Lifetime prevalence and age-of-onset distributions of DSM-IV disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication.
TLDR
Lifetime prevalence estimates are higher in recent cohorts than in earlier cohorts and have fairly stable intercohort differences across the life course that vary in substantively plausible ways among sociodemographic subgroups. Expand
Prevalence, severity, and comorbidity of 12-month DSM-IV disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication.
TLDR
Although mental disorders are widespread, serious cases are concentrated among a relatively small proportion of cases with high comorbidity, as shown in the recently completed US National Comorbidities Survey Replication. Expand
The epidemiology of major depressive disorder: results from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication (NCS-R).
TLDR
Notably, major depressive disorder is a common disorder, widely distributed in the population, and usually associated with substantial symptom severity and role impairment, and while the recent increase in treatment is encouraging, inadequate treatment is a serious concern. Expand
Lifetime prevalence of mental disorders in U.S. adolescents: results from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication--Adolescent Supplement (NCS-A).
TLDR
Estimates of the lifetime prevalence of DSM-IV mental disorders with and without severe impairment, their comorbidity across broad classes of disorder, and their sociodemographic correlates are presented to provide the first prevalence data on a broad range of mental disorders in a nationally representative sample of U.S. adolescents. Expand
Lifetime and 12-month prevalence of bipolar spectrum disorder in the National Comorbidity Survey replication.
TLDR
This study presents the first prevalence estimates of the BPD spectrum in a probability sample of the United States, and finds subthreshold BPD is common, clinically significant, and underdetected in treatment settings. Expand
The Future of Genetic Studies of Complex Human Diseases
TLDR
In their Perspective, Risch and Merikangas propose that the power of the human genome project with association studies, a method for determining the basis of a genetic disease, can best accomplish the identification of the genetic basis of complex human diseases such as schizophrenia and diabetes. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of bipolar spectrum disorder in the world mental health survey initiative.
TLDR
The uniform increases in clinical correlates, suicidal behavior, and comorbidity across each diagnostic category provide evidence for the validity of the concept of BPS. Expand
Prevalence, severity, and unmet need for treatment of mental disorders in the World Health Organization World Mental Health Surveys.
TLDR
Reallocation of treatment resources could substantially decrease the problem of unmet need for treatment of mental disorders among serious cases and careful consideration needs to be given to the value of treating some mild cases, especially those at risk for progressing to more serious disorders. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of eating disorders in adolescents. Results from the national comorbidity survey replication adolescent supplement.
TLDR
Eating disorders and subthreshold eating conditions are prevalent in the general adolescent population and their impact is demonstrated by generally strong associations with other psychiatric disorders, role impairment, and suicidality. Expand
Service utilization for lifetime mental disorders in U.S. adolescents: results of the National Comorbidity Survey-Adolescent Supplement (NCS-A).
TLDR
Examination of rates and sociodemographic correlates of lifetime mental health service use by severity, type, and number of DSM-IV disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey-Adolescent Supplement foundmarked racial disparities in lifetime rates of mental health treatment highlight the urgent need to identify and combat barriers to the recognition and treatment of these conditions.
