Marking World Mental Health day - 10th October 2019

Indefinite Immigration Detention Puts Mental Health at Risk. Indefinite immigration detention places significant stress on women’s mental health, worsening existing conditions and creating new issues, says Bedford befriending charity. Befrienders visit women in immigration detention, providing friendship and support, which can alleviate some of the isolation faced by women in detention. A representative of Yarl’s Wood Befrienders said: “The fact that women are detained indefinitely adds to the fear and uncertainty. Over the last year we have regularly visited women who speak of depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. Unsurprisingly, the longer a person is detained, the more the symptoms

We offer befriending support to people held in Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre, aiming to reduce their isolation, reinforce their self-esteem and affirm their human dignity.
