Demolarization and mental health : a community study among repatriated Greek immigrants.
In this report, data on the prevalence of demoralization in a sample of 198 Greek emigrants who were repatriated from Western Europe to a southwestern province of Greece, are presented.
The measurement of demoralization was based upon the number of self-reported non specific symptoms of distress.
The mental health screening instrument was the Langner 22 item scale. 51.1% of females and 36.0% of males, were characterized as mentally impaired with a criterion of six or more reported pathognomonic symptoms in the scale.
Multiple Regression analysis revealed that age, sex, immigration (in years) and place of birth predicted the psychological symptom score.
