Providing mental health and psychosocial support in typhoon affected areas

WHO/ F. Guerrero

The “Capacity Building on Mental Health” training seminar uses the WHO Mental Health Gap Action Program (mhGAP) Intervention Guide. This program focuses on scaling up services for mental, neurological and substance use disorders particularly in low- and middle-income countries. It also seeks to change attitudes toward those with mental health problems at the grassroots level.
