The spread of “Arab Spring” revolutions throughout the region has resulted in atrocities and the rising of psychiatric problems. In Libya, there is no clear infrastructure for medical or mental care. A fullfledged war was waged to achieve the liberation of the country. The above makes Libya a country which presents a wonderful opportunity for improving the provision and delivery of medical and mental services. The “First National Conference on Mental Health” post-revolution took place July 2012 in Misrata, Libya under the theme “The Future of Mental Health in Libya”. The author reviews the current state of mental health in Libya and reflects on the recommendations of the conference.
