Mental Health and Community Resilience

An inclusive community is a valuable resource and unfortunately rare when it comes to people with psychosocial disabilities. Yesterday, together with MASHAV, MASHAV Carmel Training Center, and Israel at the UN-Geneva, we created a webinar highlighting the need for community resilience to promote better inclusion. Dr. Devora Kestel, from the World Health Organization, presented the global trends on COVID-19 impacts on mental health. We shared some lessons we have learned with the International community and highlighted the knowledge on community-based mental health services- especially the importance of lived experience, family support and volunteering.
