Mental health and psychosocial impacts of occupation-related violence in Palestine

Médecins du Monde France (MdM) has been working in Palestine since 1996 and has been always considered since Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) as one of its core activities. Yet most of these problems are nurtured by harmful occupation policies which clearly affect the foundations of the Palestinian society and prevail its fulfilment.
