A Global Crisis
Armed conflict is devastating individuals, families and communities, affecting 1 billion globally. Among the conflict-affected, mental disorders, like depression and post-traumatic stress, double to one in 5, and often are more than 50 percent. Mental health disorders could cost $6 trillion by 2030. Unless mental health is addressed, many individuals won’t regain lives, leaving communities without the human capital to rebuild productive, peaceful societies.
The Peter C. Alderman Foundation helps people to rebuild, recover and thrive. A humanitarian and social innovation agency with operations in Africa and Asia, PCAF implements programs to strengthen mental health and recovery for communities devastated by war and armed conflict. Our programs are led by locally trained clinicians, working with members of the community, for immediate and long-term survivors.
