Women and Migration: The Mental Health Nexus
A Research on Individual and Structural Determinants of Stress and Mental Health Problems of Filipino Women Migrant Domestic Workers.
In the framework of the Joint Migration and Development Initiatives (JMDI) and supported by the European Commission-United Nations (EC-UN), the Action for Health Initiatives (ACHIEVE), Inc., in partnership with the Vrije Universiteit Medical Center Metamedica / Health Care and Culture (VUMC-MHCC) carried out this participatory research to shed light on the mental health of women migrant domestic workers. The data produced is rich and gives good insight on the realities of their lives. This research provides us with a solid background for testing potentially successful interventions.
