Mental Health and Conflicts - the first one day simulation of the semester!
Updated: Aug 12, 2020
It is not common that on Saturday morning, 9 o’clock, twenty people come to university to discuss and negotiate a complex topic like mental health. Therefore, we were happy that so many motivated people came to our first one day simulation this semester. We simulated the WHO and the topic was “mental health in conflict”. It was fairly interesting to hear the different viewpoints since many conflict-afflicted countries such as Afghanistan or Israel were represented.
In the beginning, the discussion took some extra loops such as providing buses or destigmatization via education. The buses were stuck in the minds of some delegations, however we made it back to more general strategies to tackle this issue. The representatives tried to find short term as well as long term solutions.
In the end, we were able to create a resolution and every country voted in favour. What a success!
