On Friday 20 September – leading up to the International Day of Peace – War Child will hold the second edition of the Peace Sessions Expert in The Hague. Join us in gathering expert knowledge on the impact of war on children, which will inform the upcoming Global Ministerial Conference on Mental Health in October 2019.
The day will consist of interactive group discussions, keynote addresses by the outstanding Dutch war journalist Sinan Can, and presentations on the topic of acting early with psychosocial support in emergency response. This will be led by expert moderators like Christine Pirenne, Head Humanitarian Aid at the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs; John Mahoney, experienced Mental Health Professional (WHO, Department of Health UK) and currently our Country Director of OPT; and our Director of Research & Development, Professor Mark Jordans, who will represent War Child at the Global Ministerial Conference on Mental Health. There will also be live music from harpist Lavinia Meijer.
