Healing the psychological and emotional scars of the conflict

MSFALB3178

After the launch of the Mosul battle last October, MSF received an influx of patients in a number of camps between Mosul and Erbil in North Iraq. Many of those displaced by the fighting needed mental health support.
“The people who come here have lost everything,” says Mahmud, a psychologist working with MSF in the camps in North Iraq. “We see men, women and children of all ages. Trauma-related distress is a very difficult condition to recover from. It comes with symptoms like depression and anxiety. […] Many lost trust in everyone and here they meet people who care about them, who give them time and attention, and who treat them with dignity, like human beings. With us they recover their humanity.”
Mahmud sees on average 25 patients per week. MSF has conducted nearly 18,000 mental health consultations since the beginning of 2017.
