Our teams provide medical aid in armed conflicts, natural disasters, famines and epidemics. For individuals, the impact of these terrible events can have severe psychological consequences.
Mental health teams with Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) work to reduce people’s symptoms and improve their ability to function.
Support is often provided by local counsellors, specially trained by MSF. Psychologists and psychiatrists provide clinical supervision and expertise.
