Week 3 of #migrationspeak Guest Twitter Project

We are pleased to introduce you to our third guest tweeter, Clemence Due, who will be sharing her thoughts on the @ESPMINetwork Twitter handle for the week of November 14th-20th. Clemence will be focussing on mental health & the impact of policy/procedures (e.g. mandatory detention practices, border control, temporary visas, etc.) on health and wellbeing.
