Abstract
Mental disorders are major burden in most population worldwide. The causes of mental illnesses are complex and involve genetics, neurocognitive and biologicals factors. Meanwhile, the role of genetics in promoting mental health prevention is incontrovertible. This problem brings up the question: Are immigrants bringing high levels of genetic mental diseases into the host countries? Cognitive impairment and Intelligence Quotient (IQ) are of common occurrence in these issues and genetic factors are known to play an important role in regulating these traits. One example dataset that shows this potential problem is a negative Flynn Effect in Finland over the years 1997 to 2009. A study conducted by Edward Dutton and Richard Lynn in 2013 demonstrated that “from 1997 to 2009 there were declines in all three tests averaging 2.0 IQ points a decade (Dutton E. and Lynn R., 2013). It is proposed that the most persuasive explanation is increasing levels of non-European immigrant with lower IQs who settled in Finland. As a conclusion, knowledge of the genetic epidemiology of mental disorders during immigrations not only contribute to an understanding of gene action and the pathophysiology of disease but should also help to direct the search for modifiable environmental risk
