About this Research Topic
In this Research Topic, we invite research and articles in all related areas pertaining to public mental health, and especially, but not exclusively, considering so far insufficiently covered areas such as the impact of different forms of violence like hate speech, mobbing, and shaming on the internet. This may be in relation to the complex community impact of violence, new support and treatment strategies addressing the direct and indirect impact of the different forms of violence, as well as political persecution in the context of natural disasters, like the recent earthquakes and on the implications of recent forms of the extreme violence of governments or terrorist groups, as in Ukraine, Myanmar, East Turkestan, or Syria. Public mental health education, ranging from that of students to industry professionals, with a focus on low-resource regions or refugee camps, life-long learning of post-graduate health care professionals, public health information strategies, and interdisciplinary mental health training of other professions are also areas of coverage of this Research Topic, as is the prevention of health professionals’ victimization.
Keywords: Mental health, violence, primary health care, conflict, marginalized communities, instability
