AbstractImmigrant abused women may face obstacles when trying to access resources, often with fear of deportation and social isolation. However, little is known about this phenomenon in abused immigrant Chinese women despite the likelihood that their needs are greater. This study examined whether immigration is the risk factor of depressive symptoms among community dwelling women experiencing intimate partner violence and evaluated the impact of immigration status on the effectiveness of an advocacy intervention in reducing depressive symptoms of them.
