The purpose of this study is to assess refugee family mental health and programs that can be implemented to intercept the breakdown of social capital due to mental health disparities. I analyze the data from various peer reviewed sources to obtain critical information towards combating social disconnection due to mental health imbalances. This work emphasizes the importance of combating severe levels of mental illness among refugee populations by connecting refugees with community resources and services.
