Thematic Focus: Mental Health


Refugee Adjustment Study, Univ. of New South Wales, Sydney [info]
- "[A]n Australia-wide study, which aims to examine the potential role of settlement on refugee adjustment over time. We also hope to understand the possible mechanisms through which settlement might affect psychological wellbeing. If we can understand more about how settlement stress impacts on how refugees and asylum seekers think, feel and behave when living in Australia, we can improve treatments for individuals who are experiencing ongoing difficulties related to the refugee experience."
