Half The Refugees Who Entered Germany In The Last Year Are Mentally Ill

Experts believe that almost half of the refugees who entered Germany in the last year are mentally ill.

New figures out of Hamburg show a major increase in mental illness and suicide attempts.

Over the past ten weeks there were at least 13 suicide attempts in Hamburg alone.

This is a significant increase compared to the 11 suicide attempts reported in the last six months.

The results are from a Senate response to an inquiry of the Left MPs Christiane Schneider.

Experts say about 40 to 50 percent of the refugees are suffering from various mental illnesses including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

According to the studies one in five refugee children are also suffering from some kind of mental illness.
