Depressiveness and Affective Liability among Migrants and their Children


Trevor Archer and Max Rapp Ricciadi

The numbers of refugees worldwide seems to subtend ever-increasing and proliferating wherein the burgeoning
prevalence of associated mental and psychological disorders assumes an exploding problem for, not only public
health issues but also public spending and their eventual financial consequences. Concurrently, extending over
global populations, affective disorders taking the form of depression and depressiveness, anxiety, sleeplessness and
cognitive-emotional-motivational-somatic symptom profiles present a complex array of mental disorder syndromes
that affect an increasing proportion of the worldwide population, not least those individuals undergoing self-chosen
or forced migration. Over the global reaches, but in the non-singular case the Republic of China, developed country
and several under-developed regions, it appears increasingly to be the case that a burgeoning number of children,
adolescents and young adults are left to carry themselves when the parents emigrate to usually richer countries
where employment-conditions are more favourable.
