Mental Health, Women's Rights, and Overlooked Populations
Mental health is an essential element of Primary Health Care, but is all too often overlook in the implementation of services in resource constrained settings. In this session we examine some of the mental health issues that arise in developing countries, and in the US. We explore the mental impact of commercial sex work in China, Dementia in Korea, the impact of negation of women’s rights, and end with an exploration of post traumatic stress disorder in torture survivors.
