Excerpt
The World Health Organization (WHO) is the United Nations agency responsible for action to attain the highest possible level of health for all people. Within WHO, the Department of Mental Health and Substance Dependence provides leadership and guidance to close the gap between what is needed and what is currently available to reduce the burden of mental disorders and to promote mental health. This document summarises the present position of the Department of Mental Health and Substance Dependence on assisting populations exposed to extreme stressors, such as refugees, internally displaced persons, disaster survivors and terrorism-, war- or genocide-exposed populations. WHO recognises that the number of persons exposed to extreme stressors is large and that exposure to extreme stressors is a risk factor for mental health and social problems. Principles and strategies described here are primarily for application in resource-poor countries, where most populations exposed to disasters and war live. The mental health and well-being of humanitarian aid workers also warrant attention, but their needs are not addressed in this document.
