Conflict and Mental Health: Current and Future Challenges

Charity & Causes

Panel discussion and poster competition hosted by the LSE Global Health Initiative on Conflict and Mental Health

Panel discussion and poster competition hosted by the LSE Global Health Initiative, in partnership with the Department of Health Policy and the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre (CPEC), on Conflict and Mental Health. This event will bring together experts from academia, front-line health practitioners and NGOs to showcase research related to mental health in conflict or post-conflict settings. This event will sit at the interface of academia and practice to address theoretical and practical issues related to the challenges and opportunities related to health research in such settings. Discussions will explore topics related to sexual exploitation, Gulf War Syndrome, unrest in Hong Kong and youth mental health, and the mental health needs of Syrian refugees.

The panel event will be followed by drinks and a poster display, showcasing current research on mental health and conflict from across the School.
