Psychotic pathologies have the particularity of being often chronic and costly. According to Charrier, the direct costs associated with schizophrenia range from US $16billion in the United States to US $204billion in the United Kingdom and $79billion in Canada.1 Developing countries, particularly those in Africa, are no exception. Those who are already struggling with their inadequate health systems and on a small budget do not have the means to cope with the growing mental health problems.2…

Profile study of hospitalized patients for bipolar disorders at the Dalal Xel mental health center in Fatick (Senegal) from 2004 to 2013

Bipolar disorder is influenced by biological (age, sex), social (married) and professional factors, and the medical prescriptions must consider the patient's procreation and her professional activity.



Heterogeneity in incidence rates of schizophrenia and other psychotic syndromes: findings from the 3-center AeSOP study.

There is significant and independent variation of incidence of schizophrenia and other psychoses in terms of sex, age, ethnicity, and place, which confirms that environmental effects at the individual, and perhaps neighborhood level, may interact together and with genetic factors in the etiology of psychosis.

Epidemiology of Schizophrenia in Salford, 1974–84 Changes in an Urban Community over Ten Years

The prevalence and inception rates of treated schizophrenia in the population of inner-city Salford were compared with those from a similar survey, ten years earlier, and the point-prevalence rate was higher than that previously reported (4.56), despite decreases in total inception rate and in the general population.

Systematic Review of the Incidence and Prevalence of Schizophrenia and Other Psychoses in England, 1950-2009

In this summary, all psychoses are concentrated on as a broad group, and on schizophrenia and affective psychoses as two main sub‐types of psychotic disorders; the full report contains a more detailed breakdown.

Incidence of schizophrenia and other psychoses in ethnic minority groups: results from the MRC AESOP Study

Findings suggest that either additional risk factors are operating in African-Caribbeans and Black Africans or that these factors are particularly prevalent in these groups, and that such factors increase risk for schizophrenia and mania inThese groups.

Lifetime prevalence of psychotic and bipolar I disorders in a general population.

The use of comprehensive methods reveals that their lifetime prevalence exceeds 3%, and multiple sources of information are essential for accurate estimation of lifetime prevalences of psychotic disorders.

A comparison of first admissions of Mania in Prague, Aarhus and London

The incidence of admissions for the diagnosis of a manic episode of affective psychosis was investigated for a period of 10 years (1963–1972) in the Prague population by means of a manual case register, finding that the relatively low admission incidence in Prague can be accounted for only to a small extent by differences in diagnostic criteria.

A Comparison of Community-Based Care for Schizophrenia in South Verona and South Manchester

The organisation of services in Verona results in a smaller load on the mental health service; the shorter hospital stays can be related to better integration between hospital and community resources.

Population-based trends in treatment rates in psychiatry in Oxfordshire, 1975-1986.

Routinely collected abstracts of medical records for patients in Oxfordshire were used to identify each individual's first contact with specialist psychiatric in-patient, out-patient or community

Neighbourhood variation in the incidence of psychotic disorders in Southeast London

Neighbourhood variation in the incidence of non-affective psychoses could not be explained by individual-level risk, implicating neighbourhood-level socioenvironmental factors in their aetiology.

Incidence and outcome of schizophrenia in Whites, African-Caribbeans and Asians in London

Comparison of environmental factors in these groups may identify factors that contribute to the aetiology of schizophrenia, and African-Caribbeans differed from the other two groups only on unemployment.
