Publication Abstract

Pampati, Sanjana, Zaineb Alattar, Evette Cordoba, Madiha Tariq, and Carlos Mendes de Leon. 2018. "Mental health outcomes among Arab refugees, immigrants, and U.S. born Arab Americans in Southeast Michigan: a cross-sectional study." BMC Psychiatry, 18(1): 379.

Arab refugees and immigrants living in the United States may be exposed to political, economic, social, and environmental stressors that may affect their mental health. Yet, little is known regarding mental health outcomes among Arab Americans. The purpose of this study was to measure depression and anxiety levels among Arabs in Southeast Michigan and determine whether these levels differ by resident status: refugee, immigrant, or U.S. born.
