About

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.
