Karl Sallin - Resignation Syndrome

From Saturday Morning, 10:04 am on 2 June 2018

It's an illness that seems to respect Sweden's borders - occuring only within that country, and only to the children of refugees and asylum seekers. The victims of Resignation Syndrome withdraw from life - they don't eat, walk, talk, or open their eyes. Those who are most vulnerable have witnessed, and fled, extreme violence. Dr Karl Sallin is a paediatrician at the Astrid Lindgren Children's Hospital, part of Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm, who is researching Resignation Syndrome.
