Watch ‘Gaza Dreams’ on BBC News Arabic TV

The documentary will air on BBC Arabic TV on Tues 4 Sep at 19.00GMT.

Set against the dramatic backdrop of the protests that took place earlier this year in Gaza, ‘Gaza Dreams’ explores the mental health issues that most affect many of the 1.9 million people who live there.

Through personal and moving testimonies, this lyrical film tells stories of depression, anxiety, adjustment disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and drug abuse in Gaza. It includes a young man who desperately wants to leave Gaza to reunite with his beloved in Tunisia and a drug-addicted musician who dreams of a better life through song. The programme also features a psychiatrist who explains why so many people in Gaza suffer from mental health problems and how this is affecting them.
