In our pilot project, this network used technology to connect health care workers in the Syrian conflict setting with mental health specialists around the world to receive advice and training on providing mental health care. It is the case that many health care workers in humanitarian settings will manage patients who are under stress, are traumatized or manifest mental illness. Managing those cases in these settings is usually challenging due to limited resources and lack of supervision and training.
We have demonstrated a successful model for delivery of mental health capacity building efforts in conflict settings using platform (Collegium Telemedicus). Contact us if your organization is interested in replicating this model.
Part of the mission of this network, we have provided a series of lectures on relevant practical mental health issues. You may review past lecture videos posted in the training and resources page (Videos are only in Arabic)
