Mental health crisis in Iraq, with guest Hani Aiash, MD, PhD, on Upstate's "The Informed Patient" podcast

War, political and social instability play a part

When a country faces wars, political instability and unreliable access to food and water, its citizens may also grapple with mental illness. Hani Aiash, MD, PhD, has looked into Iraq’s mental health crisis and discusses how it is similar to the crisis in the United States, along with some possible solutions. Aiash is an associate professor at Upstate who serves as assistant dean of interprofessional research in the College of Health Professions.
