Flink IJ, Restrepo MH, Blanco DP, Ortegon MM, Enriquez CL, Beirens TM, Raat H. Mental health of internally displaced preschool children: a cross-sectional study conducted in Bogotá, Colombia. Soc Psychiatry Psychiatr Epidemiol. 2013 Jun;48(6):917-26.

A cross-sectional study aimed to assess the mental health of internally displaced preschoolers in Bogotá Colombia and to identify correlates of mental health in these children. The study was conducted among 279 children attending four kindergartens in a deprived neighbourhood in Bogotá.

The authors found that preschool children registered as internally displaced presented worse mental health than non-displaced peers. Family functioning and caretaker's mental health were strongly and independently associated with displaced children's mental health.
