Three Case Studies from Ethiopia, Syria and Honduras
After the randomized controlled trial (RCT): Implementing Problem
Management Plus (PM+) through humanitarian agencies
During and after emergencies and humanitarian crisis, there are large numbers of people who are impaired for prolonged periods by distress. Grief and acute stress are usually transient psychological reactions to adversity and loss, but extreme stressors may also
trigger prolonged states of anxiety and depression. These chronic problems undermine the functioning of individuals and their communities, which can be essential for their survival and is vital for socio-economic recovery. In these periods of crisis, the health systems also tend to be overwhelmed and unable to meet the demand for essential services, and often the existing supportive care systems in the communities have also been damaged.
