According to Professor Susan Rees from UNSW Medicine & Health, people living in Australia with links to the Middle Eastern conflict are experiencing significant traumatic stress. These at-risk individuals are in need of support from health professionals and the broader community.
Prof. Rees, an expert in refugee mental health, has written a perspective paper in the Medical Journal of Australia to draw attention to these issues. The paper includes insights from women from refugee backgrounds living in Australia, who are part of Prof. Rees' WATCH cohort study.
Prof. Rees is available to comment on the mental health impacts for Australians with links to the Middle Eastern conflict and provide advice on how to best support these at-risk groups. She can be contacted at email@example.com.
