Objective:  The aim of this study was to establish the prevalence and predictors of violent victimization amongst a community‐dwelling sample of individuals with psychosis.
Schizophrenia and offending: area of residence and the impact of social disorganisation and urbanicity
TLDR
It is suggested that geographic areas characterised by high levels of social disorganisation require more investment in crime prevention, mental-health services and criminal justice responses, and that the same socio-structural characteristics that generated high arrest rates for individuals with schizophrenia also generated high arrested rates for the population as a whole.
Schizophrenia and violence: from correlations to preventive strategies
TLDR
A structured programme in which the criminogenic personality and behavioural factors, substance misuse and social dislocation are managed together with the active symptoms of the disorder could prevent the progress to violence.
Social disadvantage and schizophrenia
TLDR
Residents of high social control neighbourhoods may seek greater levels of resolution of psychiatric disorder in patient-residents, and by consequence may induce greater level of inpatient service consumption in patients diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Review: the wider social environment and schizophrenia.
TLDR
This work suggests that there may be a neighborhood social contextual effect that influences rates of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders and studies need to use well-specified multilevel models.

Spatial distribution of psychotic disorders in an urban area of France: an ecological study

Neighbourhood variation in incidence of schizophrenia
TLDR
The neighbourhood environment modifies the individual risk for schizophrenia, and Premorbid vulnerability resulting in single marital status may be more likely to progress to overt disease in an environment with a higher perceived level of social isolation.

Neighborhoods and violent crime: a multilevel study of collective efficacy.
TLDR
Multilevel analyses showed that a measure of collective efficacy yields a high between-neighborhood reliability and is negatively associated with variations in violence, when individual-level characteristics, measurement error, and prior violence are controlled.
Differences in symptomatology and social adjustment between urban and rural schizophrenics

Symptoms profile and quality of life in rural and urban patients with chronic psychoses
TLDR
The symptoms profile (modified Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale, PANSS) and the quality of life (Lancashire Quality of Life Profile, LQLP) were compared between two groups of patients with chronic psychoses, finding a possible relation between negative symptoms and impairments in social cognition and insight.
Vulnerability--a new view of schizophrenia.
