Mental Health in Refugees

Health problems are many in refugees. Every refugee has one or a few mental health issues during their migration phase. Among refugees children and women are developing many psychiatric problems as refugees. There are many reasons to get minor and major psychiatric illnesses during their migration. Men are also getting many psychiatric manifestations. Some time even they become pry to to terrorist organization by brainwash even through net. So refugees needed support and counselling to prevent mental illnesses and appropriate treatment at appropriate time for their psychiatric diseases.
