Psychotic experiences and suicidal behavior: testing the influence of psycho-socioenvironmental factors
ConclusionsAlthough psychotic experiences were not associated with suicidal ideation after statistical adjustments, psychotic experiences were associated with a significantly increased risk of suicide attempts after the inclusion of common risk factors and co-morbidities. Thus, psychotic experiences should be included in routine psychiatric assessments to identify the individuals most at risk for attempting suicide.

ConclusionsThis study, among the first to assess urbanization as a multi-dimensional continuous construct in relation to child psychopathology, highlights the value of the  use of an urbanization factors approach.

Early childhood and adolescent risk factors for psychotic depression in a general population birth cohort sample
AbstractBackground and purposeIn the group of severe mental disorders, psychotic depression (PD) is essentially under-researched. Knowledge about the risk factors is scarce and this applies especially to early risk factors. Our aim was to study early childhood and adolescent risk factors of PD in a representative birth cohort sample with a follow-up of up to 50  years.MethodsThe study was carried out using the Northern Finland Birth Cohort 1966 (NFBC 1966). We used non-psychotic depression (NPD) (n = 746), schizophrenia (SZ) (n = 195), psychotic bipolar disorder (PBD) (n = 27)...

Increased risk of anxiety disorders predicted by emotional abuse experienced by males challenges beliefs about invulnerability of men in the abusive relationships and demands further attention.

ConclusionsPrior literature has examined the impact of social capital on the incidence of psychotic disorders, as well as symptoms and course of illness. Based on the scant literature to date, it is difficult to make firm conclusions regarding the role of social capital in psychotic disorders.

Further specificity in measuring and defining dimensions of social capital is required for meaningful study of social capital and its association with psychotic disorders.
