This research paper assesses the relationship between interrupted transit and common mental disorders among migrants in shelters in Tijuana, Mexico. Cross-sectional surveys conducted in November to December 2020 and February to April 2021 evaluated the association of being in interrupted transit (sent back from the United States to Mexico), as compared to having not crossed to the United States yet or planning to stay in Mexico, with having a common mental disorder. The authors seek to convey the mental health needs of migrants on the move and promote better approaches.
