EXTERNALLY FUNDED RESEARCH PROJECTS

Refugee women, intimate partner violence and settlement: The first cohort study

Background

Intimate partner violence (IPV), prior war trauma and social hardship may place refugee women at particular risk of mental disorders including depression and PTSD. Poor mental health status can impact social functioning and impair successful settlement.

Significance

This cohort study of 1,310 refugee women (including a comparison group of Australian-born women) will enable a rigorous assessment of the specific risk factors for IPV and mental disorder, thereby guiding the most effective interventions.
