Beyond Conflict is the mental health charity for conflict zones. Our mission is to tackle the psychological suffering of victims of war, terrorism and displacement. We believe there can be no lasting peace without addressing the psychological fallout of war.
Working with local partners, we aim to deliver: free mental support to civilians and NGO frontline workers; training for frontline workers on how to identify and treat trauma. In partnership with some of the world’s top experts from the Royal College of Psychiatrists in London, Beyond Conflict is working to boost mental health support from the ground up, using remote and face-to-face training. Our first projects are in Bangladesh and Iraq.
War, displacement and terrorism have wreaked grave damage on the mental health of millions. Survivors of war continue to suffer from depression & PTSD long after a ceasefire. The worst hit are children. Covid 19 has increased those pressures. In light of the pandemic, Beyond Conflict is committed to helping within a Covid-safe environment. We are pleased to announce our first project goes live in October 2020 in Cox’s Bazaar refugee camp In Bangladesh. The world’s largest refugee camp is home to 1.2 million Rohingya refugees who fled persecution in Myanmar. BC is working with our local partner Global Development Consortium (GDC) to deliver mental health support to frontline workers from 7 NGOs in the camp; set up a support telephone hotline and open a referral pathway to enable refugees to access psychiatric support in the camp.
Our second project is in Iraq and will go live in 2021 once the Covid travel ban is lifted. Our Iraqi partner is the Al Kawthar widows and orphans charity. Al Kawthar is part of the respected international Al Khoei Foundation.
Together, we believe we can conquer the unseen suffering in post- conflict zones
