NEW New WHO prevalence estimates of mental disorders in conflict settings: a systematic review and meta-analysis

Fiona Charlson, Mark van Ommeren, Abraham Flaxman, et al., (2019)


The Lancet Published Online June 11, 2019 http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0140-6736(19)30934-1 More than one-in-five people living in conflict-affected areas suffers from a mental illness, according to a new UN-backed report, prompting the World Health Organization (WHO) to call for increased, sustained investment in mental health services in those zones. Around 22 per cent of those affected, suffer depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress disorder, according to this analysis. The study also shows that about nine per cent of conflict-affected populations have a moderate to severe mental health condition; substantially higher than the global estimate for these mental health conditions in the general population.

Hidden Burdens of Conflict

International Alert, Global Initiative on Psychiatry; London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, et al., (2017)


Some 32% of internally displaced persons (IDPs) in Ukraine suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of the conflict in the east. Among the 2,203 respondents surveyed across Ukraine, the study also found a high prevalence of mental disorders such as depression (22%) and anxiety (17%), particularly among women. This has a significant effect on family and community relations, the ability to work or even do basic tasks such as walking. Moreover, the study noted that 74% of respondents in need of psychiatric care do not receive it, mainly due to a high cost of mental healthcare and medicine.
