Mental Health Programme

ARC's Mental Health Program can be summarized as follows:

  • To increase knowledge of, and promote positive attitudes towards mental health and related issues within the community by disseminating appropriate and relevant information

  • Add to the corpus of resources in Arabic on mental health and related issues, including trauma and distress caused by occupation and conflict

  • Systematize access to such resources in multi-media formats (including ARC’s own resources on disability, primary health care and general learning fields)

  • Increase the pool of community actors with an improved knowledge of issues related to mental health, and develop their capacity to use appropriate resources in their work
