Understanding COVID-Inspired Shifts to Remote Systems of Care

Perspectives on the Provision of Remote Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Services in the Middle East

Conflict, displacement, and COVID-19 have increased demands for mental health services – and made them very hard to deliver. The publication explores the potential of remote service provision.

The publication builds on qualitative research conducted by colleagues at the Airbel Impact Lab of the International Rescue Committee and validated through participatory consultations with clients, practitioners, and management staff of organisations in the Middle East and globally.

The study is a true collaborative effort between IRC and GIZ as well as a variety of civil society partners and was supported by the Regional Programme “Psychosocial Support for Syrian/Iraqi Refugees and IDPs” and the Sector Project Displacement on behalf of BMZ.
