Caribbean Contributions to Contemporary Psychiatric Psychopathology

Issue: 
Pages: 
442–6
Synopsis: 
The burgeoning migration of Caribbean people to England in the twentieth century resulted in high reported rates of psychosis for this migrant population. Caribbean research has revealed the existence of hostile racial and environmental challenges in Britain as the primary cause of this condition. These findings have significantly shifted the pendulum of understanding of the aetiology of psychosis from a genetic to a biopsychosocial position.
