Mental illnesses are treatable health conditions. Effective treatments exist for
serious conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, first-episode
psychosis, and conduct disorder. The best available research evidence suggests
that treatment does have the potential to reduce violent behavior among some
individuals with serious mental illness (Nielssen and Large 2010; Swanson et al.

Similar differences between community-based samples and selective samples
are reported for aggressive behavior. These contrasting figures raise doubts
about the intrinsic relationship between behavioral disorders and mental
retardation. Moreover, a considerable overlap is found between aggressive and
auto-aggressive behavior in most if not all clinical studies (Ny- han 1976; Sovner
1990; Stone et al. 1989). Aggression and auto-aggression occur frequently in
clinical psychiatry.

relationship between mental illness and criminality. The available literature
indicates that some mentally ill ...

Despite the consistent finding in the 1970s and 80s that mental disorders have
some link to violent behavior, many of these studies suffer serious
methodological weaknesses, including inadequate definition of violence and
selection bias. More recently, however, data from two large and methodologically
sound studies confirm the findings from the early, imperfect efforts (31,58). Data
from the ECA study—a large, community-based survey-demonstrated a
statistically significant link ...
