Impact of Armed Conflict and Coronavirus Disease on Persons with Disabilities - Prioritizing Mental Illness or PTSD in the Socio-Economic Recovery Strategies.
people with disabilities, at all stages of their lives?
Participants will offer contexts to address the specific needs and requirements of people with mental illness or post-traumatic stress disorder, including those who have developed such pathologies, especially concerning the current pandemic and armed conflicts. Participants will also draw on specific examples by country.
The aim is to draw attention to mental illness or post-traumatic stress disorder resulting from armed conflicts or situations due to Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). These difficulties and their corollaries on the general population are not prioritized in post-disaster recovery strategies. In addition, people with disabilities are left behind, causing other pathologies: distress, anxiety, and even depression.
