How do we address the psychological needs of large populations exposed to severe traumatic stressors?

A public mental health approach is quickly gaining popularity for trauma-exposed populations in international settings. Dr. Joop De Jong, Emertius Professor of Cultural and Global Mental Health at UMC Amsterdam, will address how public mental health may inform prevention and care of populations exposed to traumatic stressors in both high-income and developing countries.
