eCALD Newsletter 17: April 2017

Wednesday, April 12, 2017   Posted in: Resources and Information By: Administrator With tags: newsletter, migrants, resources, research

Kia ora and welcome to our 17th edition.

eCALD® Research Commentary (4th Edition)

This 4th edition focuses on refugee youth and mental health issues. Refugee children and young people are at increased risk of psychological and emotional stress and distress due to pre-migration experiences of trauma, violence and multiple loss and post migration re-settlement stressors.

The research reviewed highlights the risk for refugee youth of developing mental health disorders. Co-morbid disorders, such as depression and anxiety are common in this population.

eCALD® Research Commentary (5th Edition)

This 5th edition focuses on the Health of Older Asian people. Census 2013 shows significant growth in the Asian population for over 75 years age group compared to Census 2006. There are many cultural reasons that may prevent families from seeking support for older family members.

In collective cultures, it is important for elders to be looked after by their own family. Cultural factors may delay families from seeking support, leading to increased stress for both the carers and the older person. Language barriers are significant for non-English speaking older people.
