Mental Health, Refugees & Migration
ENTER Mental Health & EPAPSY, Athens Greece will be holding a one day conference on "Mental Health, Refugees and Migration" on the 24th May 2018.
The situations that people are fleeing from generate mental health problems: unemployment, hunger, religious persecution, no future, war...). The very act of fleeing can also create mental health problems; moving, arriving in a new setting, adapting to a different culture, being victims of racism. Parallels can also be drawn with people with mental health problems fleeing from their local communities.
There will be roundtable discussions on the following topics:
“The Mental Health of Refugees in Greece: Current Situation, Possible Futures”
“The Situation in Europe”
“Migration and Mental Health”
Prof. Elli Ioannidi
Dr. Georgios Nikolaidis
Mr. Yonous Muhammadi
Dr. Declan Barry
Mr. Michael Lavdas
