Featured Video Play Icon

This documentary captures the voices of a few African practitioners working on issues related to war trauma, torture, violence, healing and wellbeing in the African continent. They reflect on Africa as a wounded continent, which impacts on the wellbeing of its people in various ways across generations. Through their work on the ground they highlight the challenges and opportunities for healing and emphasise the importance of incorporating contextual realities and local knowledge into the development of any intervention. Thoughts on decolonising mental health in Africa and recommendations on a way forward are touched on. This video is from the CSVR Symposium Webinar Series "Blended Voices: Building an Understanding of Torture, War Trauma and Violence through an African Lens," held from October 2020 to March 2021.
