Preventing the Incidence of New Cases of Mental Disorders
Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
To assess the results of studies examining the effects of preventive interventions on the incidence of mental disorders, we conducted a systematic review. A literature search resulted in 13 high-quality randomized trials, six on depressive disorder (including postpartum depression), one on anxiety, one examining both anxiety and depression, three on posttraumatic stress disorders, one on psychosis, and one on any mental disorder. The overall relative risk (RR) was 0.73 (95% CI, 0.56 -0.95),doi:10.1097/01.nmd.0000152810.76190.a6 pmid:15684914 fatcat:pb5javg6eva3xp2igeusyw53fy
