ABSTRACT
The article examines the high mental hospital admission rate for schizophrenia patients among the low social class in Great Britain. A clinical study of young men admitted to two mental hospitals and their families was conducted to obtain a group of patients assessed by psychiatrists and compare results with men suffering from other conditions. On the other hand, a large scale documentary study was also conducted to complement the clinical study. Other methods and results of the study were also discussed.
