Manus Island in Mental Health Crisis
Posted on: Mon 27 May 2019
A number of refugees detained on Manus Island have attempted to end their own lives.
This decline in the mental health of refugees is attributed to the Australian government’s re-election.
Ian Rintoul, spokesperson for Refugee Action Coalition Sydney, joins Breakfast’s Zoe and Tom to discuss this issue.
