Incidence. In many European countries, there seems to be an increase in the incidence of psychotic diseases; this appears to be related to an increase in cyclical and/or structural economic problems resulting from the growing recession in Europe, even though there is no definite evidence of the existence of a causal relationship. This leads to further economic consequences: for example, the number of cases of early retirement due to psychotic diseases is also rising, which produces further costs to society. The increase in incidence of psychotic and/or neurotic disorders, presumably caused in part by the economic development and in turn causing economic problems, provokes an analysis of the management of chronic psychotics in terms of health economics.
