MENTAL HEALTH AND PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT
Exposed to a range of difficult circumstances, mental health support is central to helping individuals, families and communities manage the short-term and long-term effects of humanitarian crises. Conflict zones and humanitarian crises exact an enormous toll on the human body and mind. Displacement, loss of loved ones and loss of livelihoods coupled with uncertainty can lead to damaging mental health conditions. At UOSSM-Canada, we recognize that mental wellbeing is just as important as physical health.
