→ “ My experience as a young psychiatry trainee in Irak with doctors without borders” (1h)

Speaker : Nicolle Boris – Young French psychiatrist

“Nowadays, mental health is a growing concern among humanitarian actors. As a psychiatry trainee, am I really legitimate to be part of a mission? Do I really have the knowledge and experience necessary to help the most impacted populations? How can I cope with a stressful context, in a culture I don’t know? What is it like to work with a translator?
I went to Qayyarah (Iraq) last year with Doctors without Borders, with all these questions. One year after, let’s think about the answers – if they are some – all together !”
