Studies show that about 36% of U.S. adults have low health literacy, defined as “the capacity to obtain, process and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions” (1). Low health literacy is associated with a lower level of education, racial-ethnic minority status, age 65 years and older, male gender, poor health status, lack of private insurance, and risk of hospitalization (1,2). In psychiatric populations, health literacy is correlated with education and verbal, visual, and intellectual abilities (3). In addition, the presence of psychotic disorders is associated with an increased likelihood of limited health literacy (3). Previous studies have acknowledged the importance of including health literacy assessment in standard psychiatric evaluation protocols, because low health literacy has an impact on the effectiveness of current best-practice treatment approaches, which may require adequate literacy (3).
