Migrants | EPiCSS
We investigate the role of migrant status on the risk of developing psychiatric outcomes using register and linked cohort data. We are particularly interested in understanding the social and economic determinants of variation in risk between the Swedish-born population, migrants, refugees and the children of migrants. We have previously shown that refugees have a risk of psychotic disorders in excess of other migrants from similar regions of origin.
Our current research focuses on psychosis, suicide and substance use disorders in particular, and their individual and contextual determinants.
