Syria: Mental Health

To address the trauma caused by ongoing violence, International Medical Corps has expanded our mental health and psychosocial support services for conflict-affected Syrians in Damascus, as well as for Syrian refugees residing in Jordan and Lebanon.

Under a regional Middle East initiative to support Iraqi refugees, International Medical Corps trained a group of 24 primary care physicians in both theoretical and clinical aspects of psychosocial care and recognition of mental illness. We support community centers in Damascus where we oversee psychosocial activities for young children, adolescents and young adults. The roughly 2,800 young people participants in these programs are evenly divided between local residents and Iraqi refugees. In addition, we opened a new child and family care center for children with special needs.
