"There is no Health without Mental Health"

academic background

As an anthropologist & global mental health professional with a dedication for both research and field intervention, I am also experienced in the development & humanitarian sectors. Main interests lie in Human Rights in areas affected by conflict or disease outbreak, capacity building and the development of new technologies or digital tools and ensuring collaboration between the different actors in the field (professionals, carers, mental health service users). Graduated from London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, I can easily adapt to new contexts, cultures and languages & I have a great resilience (Security and Safety training).
