Anti-war declaration of Athens

Humanity stands witness to the catastrophic impact of wars. The recent refugee crisis in Europe resulting from the war in Syria and elsewhere is a tragic example of the impact of war and its grave mental health consequences.

The Society of Preventive Psychiatry, the Hellenic Psychiatric Association, The Psychiatric Association for Eastern Europe and the Balkans and the Serbian Psychiatric Association have taken the initiative to prepare the attached Anti-War Declaration in the hope that along with other such initiatives it will influence decision-makers to prevent wars and stop them wherever they occur. 

The Declaration has been endorsed by 100 organizations from various parts of the world. IFOTES is one of them.

Everyone is invited to promote its implementation. Thank you for your support.
