HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS FACTSHEET:

This factsheet was developed from “Perspectives of refugee youth experiencing homelessness: A qualitative study of factors impacting mental health and resilience” (2022) by Bushra M. Khan, Jordana Waserman, and Mitesh Patel in Frontiers in Psychiatry.

Due to high rates of harmful and even traumatic experiences, homelessness negatively impacts the mental health and resilience of refugee youth, who also experience barriers in accessing support services and resources. Informed by the lived experiences of refugee youth, researchers propose a variety of interventions across six factors to consider in supporting the mental health and resilience of refugee youth experiencing homelessness.
