Syria’s Health: Focus on Mental Health
On 21st September, the Network hosted a workshop on mental health among Syrians (both in-country and externally displaced). Presentations covered the changing burden of mental ill-health since the beginning of the conflict in Syria, and practitioner perspectives from medical professionals and organisations providing programmes for refugees in surrounding countries.
A short summary of key findings from the event is available here: Syria Mental Health Policy Brief.
The event was also covered in a recent blog from Medecins du Monde Middle East.
