Her presentation underlines that women are in the risk group not only because of the negative outcomes imposed by wars, migration, inequality in education and in other social activities but also because of the other factors such as diseases, physical and psychological violence. In her study, Professor Öz highlights the crucial role of appropriate health management policies in ensuring the preservation and improving the women’s mental health.

Asst. Prof. Dr. Meltem Meriç also made a presentation on her study titled “The Role and Potential of Psychiatric Nurses in Psychiatric Rehabilitation”.
