Global Displacement and Mental Health

November 8-9, 2019

As new systems of care and treatments are being developed in response to the unprecedented movements of people, there is a need to reconsider the training and preparation that students, scholars, activists, practitioners, and policymakers receive in order to address these issues appropriately. The engagement and success of many mental health initiatives will depend on the quality of the education and training received by those involved. This convening brought together government officials, healthcare providers, academic institutions, NGOs, funders, and social entrepreneurs to discuss their experiences at the intersection of research, training, education, and policymaking. We explored partnerships between stakeholders that envision innovative ways to address mental health concerns in forced migration.
