India, Nigeria, Trinidad: REsearching Psychoses In Diverse settings

INTREPID is a programme of research on schizophrenia and other psychoses that is being conducted in Chennai (India), Ibadan (Nigeria) and Trinidad.  It is funded by the Wellcome Trust and  is a collaboration between the Schizophrenia Research Foundation (SCARF; Chennai), the University of Ibadan (Nigeria), the University of the West Indies at St Augustine (Trinidad), the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (UK), and the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London (UK).  

The programme is designed to:

a) Develop robust, comparable methods for the study of schizophrenia and other psychoses in diverse settings (Phase 1: in progress); and

b) Implement these methods in a three-country study of the epidemiology, phenomenology, aetiology and outcome of schizophrenia and other psychoses (Phase 2: in preparation)

This website has a public area in which you will find information about all aspects of the programme, including the design and methods, publications and the research team, and a members area which we use as a platform for sharing information within the team and for training.

We are particularly keen to develop collaborations and would be pleased to hear from colleagues conducting research on schizophrenia and other psychoses around the world.
