Abstract

This Study has three aims: (1) to assess the probability and severity of psychiatric impairment in a Pacific Northwest Coastal Indian village, (2) to compare epidemiologic data from this culture with epidemiologic data from three different cultures where comparable survey methods have been employed, and (3) from these data to assess the hypothesis that psychiatric morbidity is causally related to social disorganization.
