Factors Associated with Mental Health Utilization Among Minorities Following the Second Lebanon War in Israel

Factors Associated with Mental Health Utilization Among Minorities Following the Second Lebanon... The purpose of the study was to examine the association between demographics, war-related factors, and psychosocial factors with mental health utilization among minorities in Israel. One thousand and sixty-eight participants filled a battery of self report questionnaires asking about demographics, psychosocial factors and war-related experience during the second Lebanon war, along with measurements of psychiatric symptoms. Logistic regression analyses revealed that injury of a relative during the war increased the probability to utilize mental health services (odds ratio, 3.854; 95% CI, 2.827–5.253). Our results support the importance of psychological first-aid to family members with relatives who were injured during war. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Psychiatric Quarterly Springer Journals

Abstract

The purpose of the study was to examine the association between demographics, war-related factors, and psychosocial factors with mental health utilization among minorities in Israel. One thousand and sixty-eight participants filled a battery of self report questionnaires asking about demographics, psychosocial factors and war-related experience during the second Lebanon war, along with measurements of psychiatric symptoms. Logistic regression analyses revealed that injury of a relative during the war increased the probability to utilize mental health services (odds ratio, 3.854; 95% CI, 2.827–5.253). Our results support the importance of psychological first-aid to family members with relatives who were injured during war.
