STRENGTHS: Scaling up psychological interventions with Syrian Refugees

The STRENGTHS project trained Syrian refugees to provide scalable psychological programmes developed by the World Health Organization (WHO), targeting symptoms of common mental disorders. 

STRENGTHS evaluated the implementation, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of these scalable programmes for Syrian adult and child refugees across Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt, the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, and Switzerland. 

This final symposium of the project will integrate the most important and novel research findings from all partners and will provide information about the training and next steps in implementation.

The symposium will be a hybrid event, with the in-person part organised at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam from 9:00 to 15:15 (CEST). The event will take place in the Auditorium, on the 1st floor of the main building of the VU at De Boelelaan 1105, 1081 HV Amsterdam. There are limited in-person seats available and there is a registration fee of 20 euros, which will be donated to UNHCR. If you wish to sign up to attend the symposium in person at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam and buy a ticket, please head to this page.

Attending online is free of charge.
