Health and development pathways for children facing adversity

As part of the London Child Health and Development Study, this research is a prospective, longitudinal investigation of children, sampled from the general community aged 9–11 years and assessed biennially, who present premorbid risk markers for schizophrenia/psychosis.

The study oversampled children exposed to a range of childhood adversities. The study aims to characterise developmental trajectories of psychological, cognitive, and biological functioning in at-risk children and identify potential targets for early preventative intervention.
