dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the psychosocial experience of migration for two samples of refugees and migrants residing Australia and New Zealand. The analysis of responses to self-rating scales allowed for a comparison of the overall mental health status of the participants to be undertaken. The results highlighted both the differences and similarities between the two samples. Ethnic and gender comparisons within each group in regard to specific factors deemed to impact on resettlement were also explored. These findings revealed that despite the greater number of protective factors in the Australian sample their experience also places them at just as much at risk of mental disorder as the participants in the New Zealand sample.
