As Economic Anxieties Deepen, This Clinic Helps Iranians Manage Debilitating Stress

◢ These are stressful times in Iran. According to a recent study, 80 percent of Tehran residents experience at least one major stressful event per year and 45 percent report feeling stress due to the present economic situation. The Aramesh Multidisciplinary Pain Clinic recently launched new neuropsychotherapy services—never before offered in Iran—to help individuals better manage debilitating stress. Despite these interventions by the private sector, Iran’s government has yet to recognize rampant stress as a genuine public health crisis.

Notes on Navigating Tehran's Urban and Cultural Spaces

◢ There is the potential of détente between Iran and the world and conciliatory dialogues are now slowly appearing in major media which had long vilified the country.

 Iran may provide a more welcoming and more comfortable urban space than many other Middle Eastern cities, some of which are well-trod destinations for Western expats.
