Formed in 2014, the UK-Palestine Mental Health Network (UKPMHN) aims to raise awareness of the struggle for Palestinian rights within the UK mental health community. It seeks to facilitate direct contact between Palestinian and UK mental health workers and organisations, ensuring that Palestinian voices and narratives are heard in places from which they have been excluded, bringing together all those who share its commitment to universalist values and human rights.
The UKPMHN highlights the interface between the Occupation and the psychological well-being of the peoples of Palestine/Israel. It urges that all organisations and individuals be sufficiently aware of making an informed response to the Palestinian request for boycott, divestment and sanctions.
The UKPMHN has developed contacts with colleagues in the USA, France and other countries, contributing in 2017 to the formation of the USA-Palestine Mental Health Network, and they are currently working together to protest the decision of the International Association of Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP) in Tel Aviv in 2019.
