We are pleased to announce the Fourth National Summit to focus on improving Mental Health Support for Asylum Seekers and Refugees including providing Emotional First Aid for Refugees.

“The numbers of people having to wait for unbearably long periods for the Home Office to decide their fate has risen so drastically. This means more and more lives spent in limbo and fear, which can have a hugely damaging impact on people’s mental health and chance to properly rebuild their lives here.” The Refugee Council, 30th November 2017
