Risk of psychotic disorders up to five times greater for people from ethnic minorities

Risk of psychotic disorders up to five times greater for people from ethnic minorities 
- People from ethnic minorities have up to a five times greater risk of psychotic disorders than the white British population, researchers say.
A new study reveals that the trend holds in both urban and rural settings, with first-generation migrants who arrive in the UK in childhood among those at increased risk.
The team behind the study say a number of factors could be at play, including stresses related to the migration process, discrimination and issues related to isolation and integration.
