For their annual Careers in Humanitarianism Day, Manchester University held a session on Humanitarianism and Mental Health, which is becoming increasingly more discussed and recognised in both academia and humanitarian organisations.
Guest speakers included:
- Lisa Reilly, Executive Director at GISF
- Dr Liza Jachens, Webster University
- Dr Gemma Houldey, Sussex University
Speakers discussed topics including the role of organisations in the mental health of their workers, occupational risks and managing these, and how the events of 2020 specifically (including COVID-19 and BLM) have brought a greater focus onto mental health.
