Anxiety common in US Syrian refugee children

May 26, 2017

SAN DIEGO — More than four out of five Syrian refugee children in the U.S. met criteria for anxiety, according to data presented at the American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting.

To determine PTSD and anxiety rates among refugee children, a bilingual team of researchers screened adults and children at primary clinics in southeastern Michigan where refugees received health assessments within the first month following arrival to the United States. PTSD was assessed in adults, and anxiety was assessed in children. The cohort included 59 children from 20 families. Pediatric participants had a mean age of approximately 11 years.
