BLUE HILL — On Saturday, June 2, Steve Benson will speak on his travels early this spring in Israel and occupied territories, researching how the mental health of Palestinians is assessed and treated under current political, security, and legal conditions. A clinical psychologist in Blue Hill, he participated in a ten-day study tour arranged by the USA-Palestine Mental Health Network, meeting with clinicians, support agencies, scholars, and community representatives in multiple cities. 

Along with screening photographs he took while there, Dr. Benson will clarify the history, laws, policies, and practices of the occupation, discussing its complex impact on Palestinians within these areas. He will tell about efforts currently being made there to cope with the effects of military laws, hardships, trauma, loss, humiliation, and hopelessness in their communities.

The presentation at 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 2nd, at the Blue Hill Library, will be followed by discussion. Refreshments and talk are free and open to the public. For more info: phone 374-2357.
