Awareness Raising on MHPSS for the Refugees Living in Türkiye Project

The “Awareness Raising on Mental Health Psycho-Social Support for the Refugees Living in Türkiye”, implemented with the financial support of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, aims to generate and spread content with regards to mental health and psychosocial support to come up with solutions for the challenges experienced by refugees and primary health care providing institutions in terms of MHPSS.

In scope of the Project, after a needs assessment is conducted to identify the MHPSS needs of refugees, panels, seminars and workshops will be organized to raise awareness on MHPSS, and activities will be carried out to improve cooperation with municipalities and local authorities.

Owing to Migrant TV, established by ASAM for the refugees living in Türkiye to be able to follow the developments concerning national and world agenda and reach information in their mother tongue in Arabic, Farsi, French and Somali that would facilitate their lives, content is generated to disseminate reliable information concerning refugees’ MHPSS.

Increasing the support mechanisms for refugees against psychological problems that might arise during the Covid-19 pandemic period and facilitating their access to social and psychological support are also among the Project’s specific objectives.

With the Project, it is also aimed for group activities that involve methods of coping with MHPSS-related problems, intended mainly for women, children, persons with disabilities, and refugees with specific needs, to be held with the direct participation of refugees in each of the project implementation provinces.

In the seminars that will be organized in the project provinces of Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Gaziantep, Şanlıurfa, Konya, Adana and Samsun with the participation of local authorities, municipalities, universities, non-governmental organizations, and refugees, it is planned to carry out awareness raising activities on MHPSS and activities that would promote experience sharing among institutions.
