Prevalence of psychiatric disorder in the general population: results of the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study (NEMESIS)
TLDR
Depression, anxiety, and alcohol abuse and dependence were most prevalent, and there was a high degree of comorbidity between them, and the prevalence rate encountered for schizophrenia was lower than generally presumed.
The epidemiology of major depressive episodes: results from the International Consortium of Psychiatric Epidemiology (ICPE) surveys
TLDR
Community epidemiological surveys using the World Health Organization Composite International Diagnostic Interview administered face‐to‐face were carried out in 10 countries in North America, Latin America, Europe, and Asia.
Cannabis use and psychosis: a longitudinal population-based study.
TLDR
Results confirm previous suggestions that cannabis use increases the risk of both the incidence of psychosis in psychosis-free persons and a poor prognosis for those with an established vulnerability to psychotic disorder.
The structure and stability of common mental disorders: the NEMESIS study.
TLDR
The results confirm the 3-dimensional model for 12-month prevalence of mental disorders and underline the argument for focusing on core psychopathological processes rather than on their manifestation as distinguished disorders in future population studies on common mental disorders.
The Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study (NEMESIS): objectives and design
TLDR
The objectives and design of a prospective study of the prevalence, incidence and course of psychiatric disorders in a representative sample of non-institutionalized Dutch adults, which determines the lifetime occurrence of DSM-III-R disorders are described.
Strauss (1969) revisited: a psychosis continuum in the general population?
TLDR
Ass associations with lower age, single marital status, urban dwelling, lower level of education, lower quality of life, depressive symptoms and blunting of affect did not differ qualitatively as a function of type of rating of the psychotic symptom, were similar in individuals with and without any CIDI lifetime diagnosis, and closely resembled those previously reported for schizophrenia.
Which chronic conditions are associated with better or poorer quality of life?
TLDR
Comparing the QL of a wide range of chronic disease patients found that patients who were older, female, had a low level of education, were not living with a partner, and had at least one comorbid condition, in general, reported the poorest level of QL.
Same-sex sexual behavior and psychiatric disorders: findings from the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study (NEMESIS).
TLDR

Psychiatric morbidity, service use, and need for care in the general population: results of The Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study.
TLDR
The role of general medical practitioners in treating persons with psychiatric disorders is more limited than was anticipated and patients in categories associated with extensive use of professional care are more likely to have unmet care needs.
Duration of major depressive episodes in the general population: Results from the Netherlands Mental Health Survey and Incidence Study (NEMESIS)
TLDR
Although half of those affected with MDE recovered rapidly, the risk of chronicity (duration 24months or more) was considerable and underlines the necessity of diagnosing and treating those at risk.
