Mind Matters: Do We Care Enough About Refugees’ Mental Health?

Earlier this month, there was the shocking incident of the murder-suicide involving a refugee man and his two children, which led to calls for better recognition of the pressures that the refugee community face here in Malaysia. But in a society which continues to marginalise and provide little to no protection for refugees here, how are these circumstances impacting the mental health of refugees? On this episode of Mind Matters, we speak to consultant psychiatrist Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin and consultant clinical psychologist Evelyn Soong to find out more.
