Mental Health: Returning Home

Returning Home

  • Home has changed: Changes that have occurred while abroad may impact your ability to readjust to life. You have adapted to another culture and routine, so adjusting to home life may take time.
  • You have changed: Sometimes traveling abroad can profoundly affect your perceptions of the world, yourself, your country, and others. It can be difficult to reconcile your newfound and past beliefs.
  • Missing your host country: You may feel like you are back in your host country. You may become upset when others don’t understand your experience.
