Traumatic stress, forced migration and global mental health
The research group studies mental disorders in vulnerable populations and aims to identify risk factors and explore the influence of cultural factors on diagnosis and treatment of such disorders.
Our aims are to study the prevalence and identify risk factors for psychiatric disorders in vulnerable populations.
We have a special focus on internally displaced persons in low- and middle income countries, and several projects address refugees and trauma exposed clinical populations in Norway.
Our aim is also to explore, conduct research and provide training in transcultural psychiatry.
