This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book describes the outcome of needs-assessments undertaken following the Omagh bombing. It explains that the mental health and wider needs arising from loss and trauma must be incorporated as early as possible into the peace-making and peace-building project. The book looks in some detail at the efforts to understand the mental health and related impact of the violence associated with the Troubles in Northern Ireland over the period 1969 to 2015. It considers the Northern Ireland Centre for Trauma and Transformation (NICTT) and also describes developments in therapy, in training and education, and in research and advocacy. The book draws key conclusions about the approaches that could be taken to address mental health and well-being as an essential component of a peace-building project.
