Swaran P. Singh holds an M.D. degree. He was appointed a Professor of social and community psychiatry at the University of Warwick in March 2006. He initially trained as a surgeon, and his interest in mental health arose from his involvement in human rights groups working for children traumatised in ethnic violence in New Delhi. He decided to train as a psychiatrist at the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, and he moved to the UK in 1991. He was a lecturer and a consultant in Nottingham and in 2001 was appointed a Senior Lecturer at St George's Hospital Medical School. There he developed the ETHOS early intervention service, which gained an international reputation for its success in improving outcomes for young people with psychosis and for its cost-effective use of resources. He headed the Section of Serious Mental Illness Research at St George's and chaired the London Mental Health Research and Development (LoMHR&D) network. His current research projects involve exploring the complexities of the relationship between individual, familial, and societal risk and protective factors in early psychosis, continuity of care, and mental health law.
