Urban refugee populations living in Eastern Africa face numerous social-economic disadvantages affecting their mental well-being. Besides putting pressure on already overburdened healthcare facilities, these disadvantages also affect stability of other populations. Typically, refugees suffer from anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and other mental disorders. Data was collected using in-depth interviews among refugee and healthcare providing people in Nairobi. 30 Congolese were interviewed, 30 Somali and 60 healthcare providers.
