It’s been recently reported that Kashmiris, Palestinians, & Rohingya all suffer heightened degrees of mental distress in response to genocide. Shobna Sonpar is a Delhi-based clinical psychologist & psychotherapist who has studied & spoken often on the issue in Kashmir, including one study on Kashmiri militants. She discusses the problems of approaching mental distress caused by war & genocide using only a mental health & medical model when its origins are violent oppression. She’s very insightful but you can see the problematic nature of analyzing mental health issues among the oppressed when she discusses violence (beginning around 7:00). It cannot be said her explanation here is sufficiently elaborated. But she does address briefly, if also insufficiently, the issue of mental health among those who support or who do not actively oppose their governments engaged in war & genocide.
