One hundred confirmed leprosy patients, all of them migrated from elsewhere, were examined for psychiatric co-morbidity. Forty-six of them were from an 'ashram' and the others were from a slum area. 76% of the patients were found to be having psychiatric illness. Of these, 55% were having neurotic depression and 21% had anxiety neurosis. Single, unemployed, socio-economically backward and patients with physical deformities were suffering significantly more often with psychiatric symptoms. Psychiatric morbidity was found to be more frequent in the patients staying in slum than in those in the 'ashram' where they had some security.

A hundred patients with leprosy were studied; forty six patients were rehabilitated and staying in an ashram while the remaining fifty four were not rehabilitated and staying in slum areas. A11 the patients were administered Goldberg's General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) and those who scored more than 12 on the GHQ were administered Indian Psychiatric Interview Schedule (IPIS). The diagnosis of psychiatric illness was made according to ICD-9. Psychiatric morbidity was present in 76% of patients, with a statistically significant difference between the non rehabilitated group (85%) and rehabilitated groups (68%). It was noted that even rehabilitated patients expressed very high psychiatric symptomatology. Neurotic depression was present in about 67% of non rehabilitated and 41% of rehabilitated patients. Anxiety neurosis was reported in approximately 18% of non rehabilitated and 24% of rehabilitated patients. No other psychiatric illness was found.
