Mali 2019 MHPSS Needs Assessment
This assessment report by International Medical Corps examines the mental health and psychosocial support needs in the regions of Sikasso, Segou, Mopti and Timbuktu in Mali. Data was collected on the mental health context (e.g. causes of distress and local concepts of mental health, coping and community sources of support; help-seeking patterns); and on currently existing mental health services as part of health facilities. This assessment focused on identifying needs as well as resources. The assessment concludes with recommendations aimed to inform IMC program implementation and shed light on further program needs and opportunities given the critical gaps in service provision and wide ranging needs in these communities.
