Essam Daod spoke at OFF 2021 about mental health from the standpoint of being both an expert on the topic and someone that has also lived and overcome his own personal traumas. During a 2015 humanitarian rescue mission, he provided medical aid to refugees escaping from war, persecution, hunger, repression, among other atrocities, which triggered in him PTSD/trauma. Through Essam’s story, we learn that it is only when we take care of our mental health, that we can take care of others and grow.
