Aid workers and development professionals — like war veterans, refugees and victims of violence — are susceptible to trauma in conflict settings and need proper mental health care and support.
So what can development organizations do to ensure that proper services are provided to staff in the field and what can development professionals do to ensure their own mental health and well-being while on the job? Officials from Chemonics and the International Organization for Migration weigh in.
Conflict in Context is a monthlong global conversation on conflict, transition and recovery hosted by Devex in partnership with Chemonics, Cordaid, Mercy Corps , OSCE and USAID. We’ll decode the challenges and highlight the opportunities countries face while in crisis and what the development community is doing to respond.
