Ebola service

The Ebola service is a voluntary initiative developed by NHS psychologists in conjunction with the Department for International Development to support our NHS colleagues fighting Ebola in Sierra Leone and the Sierra Leonean health workers.

Our service aims are to:

  • Create a mental health service that can respond swiftly and effectively to global crises by developing a register of psychologists, trained to support humanitarian workers or willing to carry out short-term humanitarian work abroad. 

Our research

Humanitarian work has psychological benefits as well as potential risks to the workers but this is an under researched area.

We are currently conducting research to learn about humanitarian workers’ experience of their work. If you are interested in being involved, please read our information sheet and fill in our survey
