Affective and neurotic disorders in community-based services: a comparative study in south Verona and south Manchester

Acta Psychiatrica Scandinavica
F AmaddeoM Tansella


The service utilization by patients with affective and neurotic disorders in two defined populations of south Verona in Italy and south Manchester in England was compared. The composition and function of the two community-based psychiatric services, and the sociodemographic characteristics of the two centers are described and related to epidemiologically based data on service use in the community, outpatient clinic, day hospital and inpatient care. The results suggest that close liaison with primary care in south Manchester results in more referrals, and therefore higher treated incidence and prevalence rates. The close integration between hospital and community staff in south Verona is associated with greater permeability of the filter between inpatient and community care, indicated by higher admission rates for patients known to the service, and shorter length of inpatient stay (only for affective disorders) in south Verona compared with south Manchester.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
