The well-being of human rights defenders is a critical – but still often neglected – issue. Human rights defenders (HRDs) are particularly exposed to a number of different stressors. Unlike others, HRDs will generally have a higher exposure to stress and trauma, either directly or indirectly.
This booklet, ‘Psychosocial Well-being for Human Rights Defenders in the Philippines’, aims to provide HRDs with the basic knowledge to address their well-being individually, organisationally and as a movement.
