Reasearcher Bio
My name is David Barron, I am a researcher at the University of Westminster. I am researching the difference of mental health onset for the African-Caribbean community in London compared to white British in London and African-Caribbean’s in Trinidad. This type of research is of great importance, for all people, to the intervention of the psychosis.

In the UK, people from the African-Caribbean community have between a 2 and 18 times higher risk of developing schizophrenia compared to white British people. Evidence suggests that in the Caribbean, rates of schizophrenia are similar to those found in the UK and the reason for this increased prevalence in UK African-Caribbean community remains unexplained. Many factors have been suggested to this increase such as: ethnicity, religious affiliation, substance abuse, and socio-economic status. The increased rates are not attributed to African-Caribbeans alone, similar findings can be found for Asian, African and European communities, thus research findings are not only beneficial for African-Caribbeans. Intervention before the signs of schizophrenia can postpone the onset and, in some case, prevent schizophrenia. Therefore, identifying those are risk is of great importance
