Theme: Holistic Healing within Community: Partnerships Bridging Home, School and the Workplace around the Globe during COVID19.

The University of Kisubi, Uganda Behavioural Health Alliance, Sebastian Family Psychology Practice, LLC and partners invite you to submit abstracts for the 7th International East African Psychology Conference (Virtual). Under the Theme: Holistic Healing within Community: Partnerships Bridging Home, School and the Workplace around the Globe during COVID19.

As health care systems and communities around the world address the infectious disease crisis posed by the COVID-19 virus, we are reminded of the psycho-social challenges that accompany illness. Stress, anxiety, and grief impact many, and those who live with mental illness are disproportionately affected by every aspect of health crises like the one we are experiencing now.

You are receiving this email because of your longstanding commitment to mental health services and psychosocial support: including longstanding community of practice that focuses on Mental Health in East Africa. “There is no health without mental health” Dr. Ssebatian Ssempijja
