Rethinking Mental Health and the Afterlife of War

Dr Orkideh Behrouzan is a physician, medical anthropologist, anthropologist of science and technology, author of Prozak Diaries, as well as a poet and storyteller. In this insightful and awe-inspiring talk, Orkideh looks at memories of childhood and war to disrupt how we conventionally think about mental health, the Middle East, and the relationship between individual and collective memories.
