Professor Marie Gillespie, Ahmad Al-Rashid and Kelly Wearing argue that while there has been a surge in mental illness during the pandemic, it remains a taboo subject for many asylum seekers and refugees, so it’s time to challenge the stigma, seek support and #LeaveNoOneBehind.


This material is part of the Covid Chronicles from the Margins project, funded by The Open University and The Hague. The project aims to highlight the impact of the pandemic on refugees, asylum seekers & undocumented migrants.
