About the National Comorbidity Survey (NCS) Family

The NCS (baseline)

The baseline NCS, fielded from the fall of 1990 to the spring of 1992, was the first nationally representative
mental health survey in the U.S. to use a fully structured research diagnostic interview to assess the
prevalences and correlates of DSM-III-R disorders.


In 2001-02, respondents of the baseline NCS were reinterviewed (NCS-2) to study patterns and predictors of the
course of mental and substance use disorders and to evaluate the effects of primary mental disorders in
predicting the onset and course of secondary substance disorders.

What It Is, Treatments, Philosophy, and More


Holistic medicine is a form of healing that considers the whole person — body, mind, spirit, and emotions — in the quest for optimal health and wellness. According to the holistic medicine philosophy, one can achieve optimal health — the primary goal of holistic medicine practice — by gaining proper balance in life.

Polycystic Liver Disease: Symptoms, Causes, Treatments

Polycystic liver disease (PLD or PCLD) is a rare condition that causes cysts — fluid-filled sacs — to grow throughout the liver. A normal liver has a smooth, uniform appearance. A polycystic liver can look like a cluster of very large grapes. Cysts also can grow independently in different parts of the liver. The cysts, if they get too numerous or large, may cause discomfort and health complications. But most people with polycystic liver disease do not have symptoms and live a normal life.

Here are the facts about polycystic liver disease you need to better understand the condition.

What Causes Polycystic Liver Disease?

The majority of people with polycystic liver disease inherit the condition, but PLD can occur randomly with no genetic link. Women are affected by more severe disease compared to men.

PLD is most common in people who have polycystic kidney disease (PCKD), with its frequency increasing
