What is it about?

We wanted to find out the mental health status of forcefully displaced Rohingya Living with Refugee Status in Bangladesh. We wanted to find out the level of depression, and the impact of depression on the quality of life of the Rohingya people. We found seven out of ten Rohingya people are in depression, and nearly one out of ten have severe depression. Depression affects the quality of life in a reverse manner, the more depressed the people the worst quality of life is observed.

Why is it important?

This is the first study on the mental health of Rohingya people. The result also indicates that women are in the most vulnerable position to severe depression and the worst status in the quality of life.

Perspectives

The study was about the mental health status of Ethnic Rohingya Living with Refugee Status in Bangladesh. They are in a depressive state and live with a poor lifestyle quality. We need further work to promote initiatives exploring in-depth the issue and clinical research addressing mental health in Rohingya camps.
