Formatted abstract
The second Australian national survey of psychotic illness was conducted in 2010. The aim was to provide updated information on the lives of people with psychotic illness who receive public specialised mental health services.

The main focus of the 2010 survey was on consumers of public specialised mental health services administered by state/territory governments. It also included a sample of people who were only in contact with non-government organisations. It did not cover people with psychotic illness who were being treated only in the private sector or by their general practitioner.

This survey follows the first National Study of Psychotic Illness in 1997-98, which provided the first data on the prevalence of psychotic illness in the Australian population.

Public specialised mental health services and non-government organisations providing mental health services in seven catchment sites, participated in the survey. Together these sites cover 10% of the Australian population.

The sample for the survey was drawn from people receiving these services over the period from April 2009 to March 2010.
