Addressing Mental Health Disparities in Refugee Children

The proposed study will employ a cross-cultural Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR) approach to build from prior needs assessments and mixed-methods research to evaluate the effectiveness of the Family Strengthening Intervention for Refugees (FSI-R), a preventative family home-based visiting intervention intended to mitigate mental health disparities among refugee children and families using a hybrid implementation-effectiveness design. Results of the investigator's trial will expand the evidence-base on community-based interventions for refugees and has the potential to be replicated to reduce mental health disparities affecting diverse groups of refugee children and families.
