This course explores key issues in the development and evaluation of mental health and psychosocial support interventions with populations affected by humanitarian crises, such as natural disasters and armed conflicts. It discusses such questions as: ‘How do populations in diverse socio-cultural settings define mental health in the context of humanitarian crises?’; ‘How can we build on existing resources and practices that promote mental health in humanitarian crises?’; ‘What is known from epidemiological and intervention studies about common mental health problems and effective interventions in humanitarian settings?’. It challenges participants to reflect on translating science to practice, and vice versa. Course methods entail a mix of multimedia presentations and case discussions, focusing on real-world experiences.
