Improving Mental Health Support for Asylum Seekers and Refugees

We are pleased to announce the Seventh Annual Conference to focus on improving Mental Health Support for Asylum Seekers and Refugees.

“61% of asylum seekers experience serious mental distress, refugees are five times more likely to have mental health needs than the UK population.”

The Refugee Council

“The world is experiencing unprecedented high rates of global migration. The reasons for this are complex and include both positive and negative factors, such as opportunity and freedom as well as poverty and violence…Refugees and asylum seekers coming to the UK by any route may have experienced significant periods of deprivation with little or no access to healthcare... Understanding your patient’s journey, the risks they may have been exposed to and their narrative of any traumatic experiences can help you to diagnose any complaints they present with, screen for other conditions and make referrals for specialist care, if appropriate.”
