Whatever is happening where you are, I hope we are all able to find ways of acting in solidarity with one another. We all continue to need support, compassion and kindness at this time.

Two personal reflections: from Ethiopia and from Greece

We are also pleased to bring to your attention to two personal reflections in our issue this time, one by Nhial Wicleek and the other by Gialama and McGilloway. Nhial Wicleek writes a deeply personal account of his journey as a child in a refugee camp in Ethiopia to being a psychotherapist as an adult and able to provide assistance himself back in Ethiopia. Gialama and McGilloway provide a reflection on their work in Lesbos, Greece, drawing on subsequent insights about mental health and psychosocial support and adding commentary on the recent fire in Moria Camp which destroyed the camp there.
