Western models of mental health care, rooted in individual clinical interventions, are often irrelevant and inviable in conflict settings with scant medical resources and poor healthcare infrastructures. This is particularly true where entire communities experience trauma. However, community-based models offer powerful trauma healing alternatives that are highly adaptable and culturally relevant, especially for mass, complex traumas.

Please join us for a profound panel discussion as we explore community-based trauma healing practices in conflict settings across the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa.
