Beyond their acute presentation, three of BRR cohort appeared to struggle with inter-episodic symptoms of depression, and one of these crossed the SCID’s diagnostic threshold for major depressive disorder (see Sect. 2—Case BP6). This might suggest a formulation of a primary mood disorder with secondary psychotic symptoms (“psychotic depression”) except there appeared no simple linear relationship between mood and episodic psychotic symptoms and onset of psychotic symptoms appeared more strongly associated with the culturally specific trigger of the fulan lotuk rather than mood severity.

46 % but noted significantly higher combined prevalence rates in developed country settings (Saha et al. 2005). Although low prevalence presentations such as psychosis are difficult to reliably quantify our community-identified method (see Sect. 2) within a close-knit, island bound community, reduces the chance of missed cases. If movement between regions occurred it would have been unlikely to have been in the direction of net loss from the region of our study around the capital, Dili. However the more intriguing finding is the ratio of BRR to chronic psychosis and how this might be understood (see Sect.
