Breaking The Silence: Mental Health in Humanitarian Medicine

Free to register

Providing medical care and humanitarian assistance in crisis zones takes immense courage and dedication. It’s also recognised that prolonged exposure to extremely stressful environments can negatively impact the mental health of first responders and aid workers.

That’s why we held this important webinar, “Breaking the Silence – Mental Health in Humanitarian Medicine” to coincide with World Mental Health Day

This webinar will explore the psychological demands placed on those providing urgent care and relief in high-stress environments. Registration is free and open to anyone interested in this critical topic.
