where he delivered presentations on the
psychosocial situation of Gaza 2-million population.
At three different symposiums at
the two universities, arranged by Gaza Mental Health Foundation, Dr Abu Jamei
explained the depth of the psychological challenges that households in Gaza
contend with due to the continuity of the political and economic problems and the state of insecurity.
The symposiums, attended by a
host of academics, students, mental health experts and other people interested
in the Palestinian affairs, provided room for interactive discussions.

audience about the role of the mental health sector, not least that of GCMHP as the sole organization
which can provide specialized mental health services in the Gaza Strip.
Dr Abu Jamei has been on a visit to the United

human rights in the Gaza Strip after deterioration in the Mental health State
