No Peace of Mind, a report released today by AIDA and M├ędecins du Monde highlights the often hidden impact of over half a century of occupation has had on the mental health of Palestinian communities, and that this impact on mental health can often be a hidden driver of forcible transfer of communities from their land, a grave breach of international law.
The report draws from interviews conducted in August and September 2021 across ten communities of the West Bank in Area C, and reveals Palestinians suffer widespread ailments symptomatic of mental health conditions such as trauma, depression and anxiety arising from rights violations, primarily settler violence, excessive use of force from the Israeli Secuirty Forces, confiscations and demolitions.
