Incidence, prévalence et facteurs de risque sociaux de psychose chez la population migrante en France

Abstract : Migrant status and ethnic minority position have been associated to an increased risk of psychosis in many European countries in the last decades. A variation of this risk is observed in migrants and their descendants, across countries and different ethnic groups. Findings suggest a modulation of this risk by cumulative individual and environmental psycho-social adversity experienced during the migration process and in the host country, such as trauma, discrimination, isolation, inequalities in the access to the welfare and health system, employment, housing and regular status. France is the European country where migration is the most important (11% of general population) and the most ancient, as the result of many waves of migration from different countries since the 19th century. However, epidemiological studies on mental health problems in migrant populations are very recent in comparison to other European countries, and data are still lacking.This work will focus on the study of the incidence and the prevalence of psychosis among migrants and their descendants in France, and associated environmental risk factors.
