Synopsis: 
A two-year trawl of contemporary Jamaican news media articles linking the medical diagnosis of personality disorder to published public scholarship articles on the epidemiology of that condition was conducted. Results suggest that public scholarship reports of this condition prompted a popular media response which in turn generated a health promotion outcome linking contemporary social events to the contemporary medical search on personality disorder.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To ascertain whether the public scholarship of the epidemiology of personality disorder (PD) in Jamaica prompted a health promotion outcome.
