Toolkit for low-intensity interventions

In 2017, the World Health Organisation announced a new area of work on scalable psychological interventions for people in communities affected by adversity. This has led to a number of exciting new partnerships and activities focusing on the delivery of low-intensity psychological interventions to people in extremely vulnerable situations. As part of a collaboration with researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, we have created this toolkit drawing together key content on adult low-intensity  interventions for low- and middle-income countries affected by humanitarian crises:

  • Systematic review on lay-delivered talking therapies for crisis-affected populations in low- and middle-income countries
  • Innovations that deliver low-intensity psychological interventions to crisis-affected populations in low- and middle-income countries
  • Resources including reviews and research summaries relevant to the delivery of psychological interventions in humanitarian settings
