Migrant Families & Mental Health

OBJECTIVE 2:

To understand mental health in migrant families

Objective 2 assesses the somatic, psychosocial, educational, and environmental determinants of mental health in migrant families and uses multimodal approaches, integrating qualitative exploratory research and real-world laboratories with quantitative studies, to understand them.

 

Major goals of Objective 2 are to understand the role of diverse family and living arrangements, including transnational families, in shaping mental health outcomes and trajectories among migrants, with a strong focus on post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and dementia.

RESEARCH QUESTIONS
