This research provides necessary information on the mental health (specifically major depressive disorder or MDD) of refugees from Syria, as this information has not been collected or analyzed thoroughly as of yet. The researchers surveyed 135 Syrian refugees in a camp in Greece, specifically screening for MDD. The authors found that 44% of participants had symptoms of major depression. They found that women had an increased likelihood of MDD, and that time spent in the camp had a trend towards increased risk of depression.
