dc.description.abstractBackground: An increasing number of African migrants are resettling in Australia. Resettlement may provide them with many benefits, but stressors associated with the resettlement process may have detrimental effects on their mental health and well-being. Aim: To examine the resettlement experiences of involuntary and voluntary African migrants, and to explore their mental health and future aspirations. Method: An exploratory, descriptive survey was used to collect information from 115 participants from sub-Saharan African countries. Analysis of group differences was conducted for gender, employment status and country of origin. Results: Participants reported experiencing good mental health and positive future aspirations; there were no significant differences by gender, employment status or country of origin. Conclusion: Most participants experienced good mental health and positive future aspirations, findings which differ from previous studies. Mental health nurses should continually update their knowledge about the mental health services available for migrants and ensure that all migrants can access these services if needed.en
