Abstract

The relationship between number of risk factors and symptoms of anxiety and depression was examined in a cohort of Vietnamese Amerasians, replicating a study done with a previous cohort. One hundred forty seven subjects awaiting U.S. placement completed the Hopkins Symptom Checklist, the Vietnamese Depression Scale, and a questionnaire which included items found to be risk factors for psychological distress among Amerasians. Number of risk factors was linearly related to symptoms of both depression and anxiety. Results are consistent with previous findings of the relationship between risk factors and symptoms of psychological distress. The profile may be helpful in anticipating which refugees may be at risk for future psychological distress, and thus be useful in preventively allocating scarce treatment resources.
