Mental Health Study Tours to Palestine

Periodically, the UK Palestine Mental Health Network helps to promote Mental Health Study Delegations to Palestine. The last tour was in October 2019 and the tour plan for March 2020 was cancelled due to the pandemic. Further information will be available on our webiste when the next tour is scheduled. Learn about:
  • The mental health impact of occupation on everyday life
  • Trauma within families and how it affects women and children
  • Violence against children, including imprisonment and intergenerational trauma
  • Perspectives on the mental health crisis from our Palestinian and Israeli professional colleagues

The tour is facilitated by a small UK company with nearly twenty years experience providing alternative tours to the Occupied Palestine Territory (OPT) and Israel.  Hotels will be located in Bethlehem and Nazareth with daily travel to Jerusalem, Hebron, Ramallah, Nablus, Jaffa/Tel Aviv, and Haifa.  Travel will be in a private comfortable coach with an expert local driver from a licensed bus company.

“The Tour provided a superb mix of in-depth encounters with mental health practitioners and overviews of the political and social conditions within which mental health services operate—without which it would have been impossible to understand their dilemmas, struggles and triumphs.
