The Mental Elf - Preventing serious adverse outcomes in schizophrenia


#1

A very positive new development in clinical academic psychiatry has been the recent launch of a new publication by The Lancet, called The Lancet Psychiatry. This improves the visibility of mental health research and will hopefully increase the translation of such research into clinical practice.
The first issue contained a particularly important paper by Seena Fazel and colleagues that explored the rates of violent crime, suicide, and premature death in people with schizophrenia, and the factors that increased the risk of these outcomes (Fazel et al, 2014). Understanding the risk factors is critical to performing a risk assessment, to establish whether they are suitable for preventive intervention, and to see to what extent the same factors predict all outcomes.

Is that Elrond? Couldn’t be. He looks like a bad hollywood actor.

Yeah, it’s Elrond but someone photo shopped sunglasses on him, LOL

Some family friends of ours had a daughter in 1970 and named her Arwen Evenstar. We lost touch with them when the husband and wife got a divorce. I would like to find the daughter and ask her how her life has been living with a name like Arwen.
