BBC Media Action would like to share the following report - “Understanding perceptions, service seeking behaviour and challenges around mental health in Rohingya and host communities”.
This report is based on the thematic formative study where BBC Media Action looked at the Rohingya and host community’s perceptions, service seeking behaviour and challenges around mental health. We did this by speaking with people from the host and Rohingya communities as well as with mental health professionals who are currently working directly with the communities, both at the field level and management level. We believe the report contains useful information for both the practitioners (who are providing support) and the communication team to address key issues that are facing communities and improve the overall modality of community engagement around mental health and illness.
You can download the report from here.
The work was funded by EU humanitarian aid and the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.
