Assessment of Psychiatric and Psychological Needs Among Help-Seeking Migrants in Dublin
Assessment of Psychiatric and Psychological Needs Among Help-Seeking Migrants in Dublin (2008)
Kelly, F, Kelly, B. and Ryan, D.
This study investigated the problems presented and health care needs of migrants with mental health difficulties who sought help in the Mater Hospital, Dublin and compared them to those of native Irish who sought such help. The purpose of the study was to guide the health service in how to adapt to serving a more culturally diverse population, and to develop the cultural competence of staff. The study findings have been used both to inform the planning in the Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, and to guide the training of mental health staff in Ireland. The study was funded by the National Disability Authority under the Research Promotion Scheme.
