New guide: Supporting combatants

Wounded demobilized or former combatants need psychological and social support in addition to their medical treatment and rehabilitation. They may have reactions because of their physical and psychological trauma or medical procedures and changes in their bodies. They may also be overwhelmed, confused, and emotionally pained when considering the possible changes to their future lives.

For combatants, talking with a supportive staff member or volunteer who listens attentively and understands traumatic events and their impact on mental health can support the recovery process.

This four-page guide describes how staff and volunteers can give psychococial support to combatants.
