Refugee children have fewer contacts to psychiatric healthcare services
7 May 2018
An analysis of a subset of refugee children compared to Danish-born peers.
Refugee children used fewer psychiatric healthcare services than Danish-born children. This may indicate that refugee children experience barriers in accessing psychiatric healthcare systems and do not receive adequate assessment of their mental health and subsequent referral to specialist services.
