Episode #64 Healing after Trauma: Mental Health in Conflict with Monica Mukerjee

In this episode of Intercross the Podcast, we sit down with Monica Mukerjee, a Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Delegate for the ICRC currently based in Juba. She is also the Sexual Violence Focal Point for the delegation. Since March 2018 she has worked in South Sudan developing mental health and psychosocial activities for victims of violence in primary health care facilities as well as for weapon-wounded patients receiving care in ICRC hospital programs. She has previously worked in Uganda, Geneva and Ukraine. How do you promote mental health as a priority in contexts where physical needs are often lacking? What types of support does ICRC provide? How do practitioners address issues around stigma? How do they practice self-care? Join us for a fascinating conversation finding healing after trauma. Hosted by Niki Clark.
