Obwohl auch innerhalb der modernen Pharmakotherapie endogener Psychosen vorerst die neuroleptische Behandlung der Schizophrenie völlig im Vordergrund gestanden hatte, begann sich doch in den letzten acht Jahren seit der Entwicklung von Antidepressiva die Aufmerksamkeit wachsend auf die endogenen Depressionen zu richten.

Die Klinikaufnahmen von endogenen Depressionen und Manien sind in den letz­ ten zehn Jahren in der Schweiz ständig gewachsen.
