Abstract

This study explored the psycho-social factors associated with the mental health of uniformed personnel in Internally Displaced Persons' (IDP) camps in Nigeria. A quantitative research methodology was adopted using a descriptive survey. A total of 500 uniformed personnel, comprising of 311 males and 189 females in 5 IDP camps, were recruited. The findings revealed that age, social support, job satisfaction and occupational stress were significantly associated with mental health. Additionally, occupational stress and job satisfaction were found to predict the mental health status of the participants. It was concluded that the relevant agencies and the public should be concerned with the mental health status of uniformed personnel in IDP camps.
