Mental Health Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic Among Migrants in Chile


Brief description of study

Evidence suggests that social isolation affects mental health by increasing symptoms of anxiety and depression. One of the main components of the current COVID-19 pandemic is the social isolation imposed on the population. This study seeks to assess the impact of the physical and social living conditions of the pandemic in a cohort of urban immigrants in Chile (i.e. STRING) evaluated six months prior to the pandemic.

Specific aims are to

  1. Describe the variations in the levels of mental health of immigrants during and after the pandemic,
  2. Calculate the effect of social isolation on the levels of mental health of the immigrant population, and
  3. Identify risk / protective factors associated with increased mental health problems

An online survey will be applied to the STRING cohort at two moments of the pandemic (i.e. during quarantines and after six months).
