Facilitating access to care through the creation of specialised assessment centres to complement the current system of care is one of the possible avenues for improvement.
Past reports have suggested that antiphospholipid (aPL) antibodies may emerge as a response to antipsychotics treatment, as a high prevalence of aPL antibodies in antipsychotics users has been observed. However, no control group of non-medicated psychiatric patients was included in these reports. In a cross sectional study we determined the prevalence of(More)
Suicidal crisis is an escaping moment during which the subject shows a state of vulnerability and a lack of his/her defense abilities, putting him/her in a pain which is not always visible and that does not express itself through a plain nosographic context. Because of that, the practitioner's intervention is made more complicated. In this article, we offer(More)

The putting in place of treatment is often delayed because it is difficult to identify early schizophrenic disorders. At this stage of the illness, the doctor participates as much as the family and the patients themselves in the delay of the diagnosis.(More)
