Trauma and Peacebuilding: How Well Are Peacebuilders Responding to Conflict’s Impact on the Mental Health of Individuals and Communities?

How does peacebuilding respond to individual and collective trauma?

What works and what doesn’t in acknowledging and addressing the impact of conflict and violence on the mental health of individuals and communities?

How are conflict survivors leading initiatives to strengthen their and their communities’ resilience to trauma experienced?


Mental health has been called the missing link in sustainable peacebuilding. Although there is increased acknowledgment by peacebuilders of the cyclical and intergenerational relationship between violence and individual and collective trauma, mental health considerations still remain on the margins of most peacebuilding programming. This event invites practitioners and policymakers to reflect on the intersections between the two disciplines, to hear from conflict survivors on what has worked for them and why, and learn about programmatic examples that have succeeded and failed in bridging the divide between peacebuilding and mental health.


Please RSVP here.
