Peacekeeping and PTSD: The Psychological Legacies of Australian Peace Operations
January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am
Over 65,000 Australians have served in more than 50 United Nations and other multilateral international peace operations since 1947. While many peacekeepers feel their contribution is important and rewarding, the capacity for some to develop mental illness after their service is well documented ‚Äì often for reasons different than those found in combat operations. This talk will explore the unique characteristics and stressors of peace operations, and their potential psychological impacts on veterans and their families.
