Iranian migrants stressed by language barriers, underemployment

Imagine if you are a doctor or an engineer, you have trained for years to do the job you love, but then you decide to move to a new country.

It’s a country with more opportunity, but you can’t speak the language, and the country doesn’t recognise your qualifications.

These are common gripes with migrants across the world, and it can often create mental health issues.

She speaks to Ellen Leabeater.
