  1. Schizophrenic patients who were never treated : a study in an Indian urban community.

    Article - En anglais

    Background

    A significant number of patients with severe psychiatric disorders remain untreated in the community although health services are available.

    The factors related to non-treatment are not well understood.

    Method

    A door-to-door survey was conducted on an Indian urban population of 100 000 using standardized screening and clinical instruments as a part of a larger epidemiological study.

    Treatment status was determined from multiple sources of information.

    Results

    Nearly one-third of 261 schizophrenia patients were found never to have received treatment.

    They were older in age and ill for a longer duration than those who had been treated and were more symptomatic and severely disabled.

    They were more often uneducated and divorced and lived with larger extended/joint families.

    This last factor was considered as being the important factor in determining whether the patient received treatment.

    Conclusion

    The larger extended/joint family, which was able to compensate and cope with the dysfunctional member, seemed to be the crucial factor related to non-treatment of the schizophrenic patient.
