Sponsored by the National Institute of Mental Health, the Epidemiologic Catchment Area Study supported teams of investigators in five sites who interviewed a sample of almost 20,000 Americans about their emotional and mental states and behavioral symptoms. Here contributors present the findings and examine the extent of each disorder, among them alcoholism and drug abuse, schizophrenia, depression, generalized anxiety, panic, phobias, obsessive compulsive disorders, antisocial personality, and cognitive impairment.
