Mental health of asylum seekers
The UK's complex asylum seeker process,
detention centres and aspects of UK
life are worsening the mental health of
refugees and asylum seekers.
This is the conclusion of two new
reports by mental health charity Mind.
The reports found refugees and asylum
seekers are often denied access to
crucial services and treatments.
Restrictive policies on healthcare,
education, accommodation and employment
are further marginalising refugees and
asylum seekers from society.
