Migration has been reported to be associated with higher prevalence of mental disorders and suicidal behaviour. The aim of this study was to examine the prevalence of emotional and behavioural difficulties, suicidal ideation and suicide attempts among migrant adolescents and their non-migrant peers. The study found that appropriate mental health services and school-based supports are required to meet the complex needs of migrant adolescents.
