    "LONDON, March 2016 (Reuters) - Refugees fleeing war, violence and persecution have a much higher risk of developing psychotic illnesses like schizophrenia than people who migrate for economic or social reasons, according to research published on Tuesday.

    Researchers writing in the BMJ British medical journal said their findings suggest government healthcare officials in countries taking in refugees should plan to be able to help higher numbers of mental health patients.

    Humanitarian crises in Europe, the Middle East, north Africa, and central Asia mean there are currently more displaced people, asylum seekers and refugees worldwide than at any time since Word War Two.

    Refugees have a raised risk of mental conditions such as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) - which brings flashbacks and panic attacks and can render patients emotionally volatile - but until now little has been known about the risk of psychosis."

    That may all be true, but I would be willing to bet 99% of those "migrants" doing the bombing, shootings, knifing and suicide bombings --- and even the rapes ---- are doing so because they think Muhammad or the Koran has given them license to do so and even get rewarded for their horrors.

    They are spiritually indoctrinated, not mental health PTSD. Bad spirits, I might add.

    Stress and trauma cause psychosis.

    Can you imagine what centuries of such conditions would do to people?
