Ebola Survivor Health in Tonkolili, Sierra Leone, Oct 2015

Mental health

Where we work, we may see people with a mental illness or confronting distressing situations, such as violence, loss or displacement.

Mental health support can be crucial to help people cope. People seek help for many reasons - the agonising loss of a child in an earthquake, the trauma of violence, or surviving a dangerous journey. Our teams can provide mental health and psychosocial support through group sessions or individual consultations. MSF’s mental health care aims primarily to reduce people’s symptoms and improve their ability to manage a difficult time so they can get on with their lives.
