A key organisation facilitating international refugee support conferences for over 30 years.

The title of the 2017 ISHHR Conference was Mental health, mass people displacement and ethnic minorities and it focused on the displacement of communities as a result of conflict, the phenomenon of mass-traumatisation and the response of the European neighbourhood (particularly Central Europe) to the mass influx from the Middle East and North Africa (particularly as a result of the Syrian crisis).
