Mind Matters: Mental Health in the Shadows of Conflict and Crises

Global geopolitical events have weighed heavily on our minds in the last few months. The impact of wars, the climate crisis, natural disasters, and disease outbreaks, seem to be relentless and inescapable, no matter where we are. What is the mental health impact on people who have witnessed or experienced disaster, or for the rest of us, the constant exposure to distressing events on social media? We explore how mental health issues unfold in the shadows of conflict and crises, with Dr Muhammad Haniff Bin Abdullah, President, International Association for Disaster Mental Health, and Liana Mohd Nawi, Clinical Psychologist & Director, Professional Services, Thrive Well.
