Humanitarian aid workers in Uganda show signs of stress, depression, and burnout

See on Scoop.itCounselling and Mental Health

The high risk for mental health problems among staff working in humanitarian organizations in northern Uganda is due in large part to their work environment.

marsdentherapy‘s insight:

I’m going for some training in critical stress incident debriefing soon, an approach still recommended for aid workers traumatised by their role. Contra-indicated for other acute traumatic events. No doubt I shall find out more in March.
