Doctors, Researchers Beginning To Take Action On Mental Health Of Migrants, Refugees Entering Europe

Nature: The mental health crisis among migrants
“…Europe is experiencing the largest movement of people since the Second World War. … Most came from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iraq. Many have experienced war, shock, upheaval, and terrible journeys, and they often have poor physical health. … What hasn’t been widely discussed is the enormous burden of mental health disorders in migrants and refugees. … Doctors and researchers are starting to take action…” (Abbott, 10/10).
