Gilliver, Stephen LU ; Sundquist, Jan LU ; Li, Xinjun LU and Sundquist, Kristina LU (2014) In European Journal of Public Health 24 Suppl 1. p.72-79
Abstract
The arrival of large numbers of economic migrants and refugees has seen the Swedish immigrant population increase rapidly. Research has shown that immigrants may be more susceptible to mental disorders because of traumatic events prior to immigration and adverse circumstances in their new country. The aim of this literature review is to summarize and interpret recent research on the mental health of immigrants to Sweden.
