    Abstrakt

    Medical staff working with asylum seekers has claimed that long periods of residence in asylum centres may cause or aggravate mental disorders. We analyzed a large amount of material from Red Cross asylum centres in Denmark 2001-2002 regarding referrals for mental illness in order to study whether the incidence of mental disorders increased with the length of residence in the centres. Referrals for mental disorders increased with the length of residence in asylum centres. The association was found in all categories of psychiatric illness studied and for a majority of the nationality groups studied.
