Everybody! Just as an accident, no person can claim that they will never have a mental illness. Over 60% of the population has or will, at some time or the other suffer from a psychiatric illness. It does not discriminate between rich and poor, educated and uneducated, or skilled and unskilled. Such illnesses occur all over the world, in both developed and developing countries. Incredibly, the recovery from psychiatric illnesses is better in developing countries, possibly due to the support our family and society give to the patient. There is of course some difference in the risk of specific illnesses. Depression is 3 times more common in females than in males. Anorexia and bulimia is more common in young females ( but not necessarily in city dwellers). Attempted suicide due to personality disorder is more common in young females around 15-25 yrs. Sexual dysfunction is found in over 60% of males but in 30% of females. Childhood behavior and academic problems are more common in families with multiple caregivers. Most importantly, a family history of psychiatric illnesses is the strongest risk factor for an individual.
