Core Tip This editorial illuminates the complex nature of catatonia, emphasising its varied psychomotor symptoms. It highlights challenges in diagnosis, noting the effectiveness of the Bush-Francis screening instrument over the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5 criteria, and discusses the syndrome’s prevalence and associations with disorders like schizophrenia and mood disorders. Furthermore, it critically examines mainstay treatments such as benzodiazepines and electroconvulsive therapy and advocates for strong diagnostic criteria and prompt intervention. It calls for further research into catatonia’s neurobiological and genetic aspects, aiming to advance mental health care outcomes.
