It is with the greatest pleasure that we invite you to register for the 2nd International Conference on Trauma & Mental Health to be held in Jerusalem from 6 – 8 September, 2020. 

In May 2017, many of the world’s leading mental health practitioners and researchers convened in Jerusalem to attend our international conference to focus on issues around trauma and mental health.

The focus in 2017 was on veterans, military personnel and first responders.  In 2020, the focus will shift to community trauma including working with those living in, managing or displaced, following ongoing or long-term trauma and conflict - a situation affecting many communities worldwide.  It will address innovations in how those in mental health roles provide support and intervention to those affected by trauma and conflict.

The committees have developed a truly international event with high profile keynote speakers from Australia, UK, USA, and Europe.
