. . . migration in general can also precipitate forms of psychosis, like schizophrenia . . .

Many of us have experienced people going a little crazy with the shock of travel. It can happen to anyone.

. . . questions like: “have you seen anything suspicious?”. We know from studies with settled migrants that those most at risk have a tendency to be suspicious of their environment.

I find it stressful when settled migrants are suspicious of me. In this situation anything I do seems suspicious. Be friendly, unfriendly, ignore, every possible course of action seems likely to generate more suspicion.

Would the study help refugees?
We hope we can develop an early-recognition programme to identify people who are most at risk of developing psychosis and who would most benefit from intervention — without having to put them in a scanner.

Pre-psychosis intervention. I can't see that being easy.
