Emergency aid to Syrian refugees in the Beka’a Valley (Lebanon) to ensure comprehensive, inclusive and accessible mental health and social protection services

This project’s goal is to reduce the impact of mental illness in Syrian refugee population in Lebanon, and in the Lebanese population living in the host communities, through a multidisciplinary intervention:

Psychotherapy: Medical consultations (in the clinic and at home, for those beneficiaries who are unable to travel) and psychotherapy if necessary.

Psychotropic Medication: The FPSC team will provide psychotropic medication to those patients previously diagnosed with such needs.

Research and training: A Mental Health Crisis Management Protocol will be developed for “front line” humanitarian workers and there will also exist mental health crisis management sessions/workshops.
