From: Mental health among children seeking asylum in Denmark – the effect of length of stay and number of relocations: a cross-sectional study

Psychopathology 4–16-year-old children 11–16-year-old children

  1. * The categorisation is formed on the basis of a manual based on British data (background population and clinical child psychiatric material).
  2. ** Former investigations of the prediction of the SDQ have shown that of these children with an estimated psychopathology possible around 10–26% have a psychiatric diagnosis and around 74–90% do not have a psychiatric diagnosis [23, 24].
