(p.1) Introduction
Conflict, Peace and Mental Health

David Bolton

Manchester University Press

In the Introduction, the author describes the background to the book and his personal experiences of violence in Northern Ireland - as a social worker and health and social services manager in Enniskillen and Omagh. He addresses the impact of loss and trauma linked to conflict and the implications for mental health and well-being. The structure of the book is outlined and the author sets the rest of the book in the argument that the mental health of conflict affected communities should be an early and key consideration in peace talks, politics and post-conflict processes.

Keywords:   Omagh, Enniskillen, conflict, peace, politics, peace making, loss, trauma, mental health
