Assessment of Mental Health of Adults Affected by Violence Related to Conflict in Burundi: A Qualitative Study

Elevated levels of mental distress are frequently reported amongst populations exposed to war and armed conflict. Burundi is not only one of the poorest nations in the world, but has also endured a long-standing armed conflict where most of the population was exposed to some level of trauma. At present, there is a paucity of epidemiological data from Burundi that can inform critically needed mental health interventions. Using qualitative interviewing techniques, the goal of this study will be to gain local insight of the major mental health and psychosocial issues of concern among adults from communities in Burundi. Additionally, these results will create the context for a related study using quantitative data form the Burundi Priority Survey Study. This mixed-methods approach will aid in determining the appropriate models to describe the association between trauma and mental health in a developing country.
