    Consequences of War: A Refugee and Immigrant Mental Health Crisis in the Middle East

    2:00 PM - 4:00 PMCUNY Graduate School of Public Health and Health Policy

    Consequences of War: A Refugee and Immigrant Mental Health Crisis in the Middle East

    A forum on refugee and immigrant mental health

    When: Thursday September 20, 2018, 2pm – 4pm Where: CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy 55 West 125th Street, 7th floor auditorium RSVP

    Please join us. Registration is free.

    Conflict in the Middle East has produced vast numbers of Arab refugees seeking asylum in neighboring countries, Western Europe, and elsewhere. They are exposed to multiple sources of trauma, including the ravages of war, often perilous informal routes of escape, and finally, the stress of attempting to settle in unfamiliar and often hostile new environments. In consequence this population is at considerable risk of developing mental stress, including anxiety, depression, prolonged grief disorder, and post traumatic stress disorder. Culturally aware mental health services are frequently inaccessible. On Thursday, September 20, 2018, the CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy’s Center for Immigrant, Refugee, and Global Health will present a forum on the Consequences of War: An Immigrant Mental Health Crisis in the Middle East. An international panel of mental health experts will address clinical and empirical perspectives on Arab refugee mental health and discuss strategies for building capacity for culturally competent treatment and reducing barriers to access. Speakers: This is an interactive forum, with ample opportunity for panelist discussion and audience Q&A. RSVP The CUNY Graduate School of Public Health & Health Policy is committed to providing a collaborative and accessible environment for excellence in education, research, and service in public health, promoting and sustaining healthier populations in New York City and around the world, and shaping policy and practice in public health for all. www.sph.cuny.edu
