The mental health of 63 refugee children, with a mean age of 5,9 years, from Chile and the Middle East, were studied during the first 18 months of exile in Stockholm, Sweden. 46% of the children were rated as having poor mental health five months after resettlement in symptom interviews with parents based on the structured questionnaire developed by Cederblad, and 44% thirteen months later.
Political violence in the home country and stress in the family sphere in exile were identified as the major determinants of poor mental health in this context.
