Kos, A. M., & Zemljak, B. (2007). Psychosocial support for children, families and teachers in Iraq. Intervention, 5(2), 150-158.

In 2003, a community based psychosocial programme for children in Iraq was started. Psychosocial activities were implemented in primary schools and in primary health care settings aimed at child mental health protection. This field report describes the programme and some of the difficulties that were encountered. It concludes that even in circumstances as difficult as they are in Iraq it is possible to run psychosocial programmes – if reliable partners are involved.
