Several STRENGTHS collaborators were involved in new publications that are relevant for the project:
Article available in German only, describing E-Mental Health as an approach to support persons in areas with little access to mental health care. It also explains two projects regarding the WHO intervention “Step-by-Step”: a WHO and University Hospital Zürich project in Lebanon and STRENGTHS.
The article then goes into more details on topics around implementation, dissemination and cultural adaptation of E-Mental Health, using Step-by-Step and the two projects as examples.
Edith van’t Hof, WHO and colleagues wrote about the experiences of key informants in Nairobi, Kenya, where PM+ was tested.
Book chapters by STRENGTHS collaborators Inka Weissbecker (IMC) and Peter Ventevogel (UNHCR) describing the issues around mental health in refugee emergencies and provides an outline of the actions to be taken.
Various STRENGTHS collaborators also contributed to chapters in the book ‘Mental Health of Refugee and Conflict-Affected Populations’:
