Study suggests Schizophrenia is linked to social inequality 

News Content

New research suggests that higher rates of schizophrenia in urban areas can be attributed to increased deprivation, increased population density and an increase in inequality within a neighbourhood. The study published in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, was led by the University of Cambridge in collaboration with Queen Mary University of London, and supported by the Wellcome Trust and NIHR. The research found that a percentage point increase in either neighbourhood inequality or deprivation was associated with an increase in the incidence of schizophrenia and other similar disorders of around 4%.
