"Assessing Staff Acute Stress Post Beirut Blast (Wave 2) at SGHUMC"

As part of the prospective cohort study to evaluate the impact of the Beirut’s explosions on the mental health of SGHUMC staff, especially pertaining to Acute Stress Disorder (ASD), a second assessment was initiated 3 weeks after the explosion.


This assessment was in the form of an online survey sent to all the hospital’s staff and it included a similar scale to the one used in wave 1 addressing a different timeframe.


Staff who felt the need to seek mental health support were referred to the walk-in clinic  and hotline.


Test results will be shared with reachable participants to offer assistance by our clinicians when needed.

Analysis of the second wave of the study are under way and will be submitted for publication in a scientific journal.
