The WPA Section on Ecology, Psychiatry and Mental Health has identified and developed interests and peculiarities of the present reality such as:
the psychiatric consequences of natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, volcanic eruptions, etc.);
post-traumatic stress disorder;
the nature and structure of traumatic events and the study of reaction processes;
environmental risks at work and the repercussions on mental health;
natural disasters and any war events suffered by immigrant populations and their consequences on individual mental health;
implications and repercussions of the ecological operator in interpersonal and social relationships;
environmental degradation and pollution as a threat to mental health;
the role of nature in the treatment of mental health conditions; and
possible synergies with the International Red Cross, the Civil Protection and other NGOs.
