Mental health is central to health, and research has recognized the vulnerability of refugees, asylum seekers and internally displaced persons in relation to mental health. Escalating wars and continuous conflicts contributed to mass displacement of people during 2015. By the end of 2015 almost 60 million individuals were forcibly displaced. In 2015, one million refugees came to Europe, and almost 4000 have died in the Mediterranean. This situation requires a timely and effective Public Mental Health answer.
Key words: Refugees, mental health, public mental health, mass displacement
