African-Caribbean people living in the UK have a significantly higher risk for schizophrenia compared to white British people. It has been suggested that this increased risk is linked to stress arising from perceived or experienced societal discrimination and disadvantage. While there has been some research in this area focusing on people who are already ill, there has been little study of currently healthy, but potentially vulnerable people or those with schizotypal traits.
David Barron and Kevin Morgan will be discussing the background and rationale for their research, which they are conducting in both London and Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
