Kids Subjected To Multiple Moves May Have Increased Risk For Mental Health Problems

Reuters (11/7, Rapaport) reported that children subjected to multiple moves may have an increased likelihood for mental health problems compared to peers who do not move, a study published online Oct. 16 in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health suggests. After following some 50,000 children in Northern Ireland for a decade, researchers found that children who underwent five or more moves had three times the likelihood of having a mental health problem.
