Gaza Community Mental health Programme Resource Group


In January our Clinical Director, Dr. John Van Eenwyk (back row, first from left), joined with members of a resource group to plan for the Gaza Community Mental Health Programme’s (GCMHP) next two decades. The resource group consisted of seven members of GCMHP, two professors from Harvard Medical School, a professor from the Free University of Berlin, a psychiatrist from Pakistan who is the Secretary of the World Psychiatry Association, a representative of the International Medical Corps in Japan, and Dr. Van Eenwyk. The discussions took place for a week in Egypt.
