In Lebanon, the Department of Psychology at the American University of Beirut in collaboration with Medecins du Monde-France, are organizing a one day forum on the 18th of December, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on “Research on Mental Health & Psycho-social Support (MHPSS): Focus on the Syrian Humanitarian Crisis”. Through a shared platform composed of different stakeholders (academics, humanitarian aid organizations, policy makers), the forum will aim to provide an open space to share MHPSS research findings, experiences, challenges, best practices as well as encourage new opportunities to foster further MHPSS research collaboration within the humanitarian context.
A major component of the forum will be a focused discussion on strengthening collaboration between humanitarian agencies and academic institutions for MHPSS research as well as setting forth the MHPSS research priorities for the field.
