AMA members are advised that a recording of the Countering Violent Extremism Webinar for health professionals titled: Mental illness, terrorism and grievance-fuelled violence: Understanding the nexus is available online on the Mental Health Professionals’ Network website. You can view the webinar recording here.

The webinar discusses the complexities and non-causal links between mental illness and grievance-fuelled violence. The webinar will also help you identify and take appropriate steps if you are concerned that someone you are supporting may be tending toward extremist ideology, abnormal fixation or pathological grievance.

The AMA advises the Government on relevant issues related to extremism through the Health Expert Advisory Group.
