Description

What is the risk profile of children of Iraqi refugees? Among adult refugees, higher prevalence of mental disorders has been associated with shorter time since resettlement and exposure to more potential traumatic events (PTE). We hypothesized that similar associations would hold in the children of Iraqi refugees.
