Detention harms children

Detention harms children.
We are advocating that children should not be held in detention. We stand with our colleagues at the Academy of Child and Adolescent Health (ACAH), the RCH and RACGP and support its statement released today that the issue must be resolved as a matter of urgency. Detention harms children – and this protracted dispute is doing even more damage to these young lives.
