VPN Danmark - i Wien
RAN EXIT Meeting,
Vienna December 8th 2015
RAN EXIT will discuss the role of mental health in exit work. Engagement in violent extremist activities can lead to mental health problems, such as post traumatic (stress) disorder, or exacerbate pre-existing conditions. Recent research also shows that a considerable number of people already coping with mental health problems take the pathway to violent extremism or fighting in conflict zones abroad. What implications does this have for exit strategies? How can these people, who were perhaps already in the margins of mainstream society because of their mental problems, be socialised after a destabilising experience? On 8 December 2015, in Vienna (AT), both first line de-radicalisation practitioners and mental health workers will be invited to discuss these issues.
