“It has been heartening to see the compassion of survivors to help others in need and their determination to pick up the pieces and move on with their lives,” says WHO’s Dr Julie Hall. “But we know many are also overcome by immense loss and their grief is bound to worsen around the holidays. Now is the time to step up mental health services for survivors, and children are a group that will need special attention.”
