About this book

Introduction

This book unravels the mental health challenges of the migrants and the socio economic and cultural conditions that bear on the mental well being. In addition, it covers the measures of intervention that can help the migrants maintain or restore their mental well being. Research included in the book is timely given that there is ever increasing mobility of people which on one hand has led to better livelihoods, but on the other has created conditions of stress for the migrants and their families. As migrants are often found to be hesitant of using the health care facilities in the new place which may be due to the lack of awareness, this book elaborates on the health care facilities, cost issues, stigma, and several other factors.
