Migrants and mental health

Dr. Marianne Kastrup

Dr. Kastrup details the impact of traumatic migration from persecution or war, but also highlights intra-continental economic migration as being a risk factor for mental health problems. She highlights the importance for psychiatrists to move away from a singular approach, and towards accommodating different cultural perceptions of illness and therapy amongst different migrant populations.
