Mental health is one of the most significant casualties of the conflict in Syria. But it is often overlooked. In Syria, as the prevalence of psychological trauma increases, the number of psychiatrists and other qualified medical personnel continues to fall. 
At Syrian Forum, we are developing a training program in psychology to teach Syrian professionals how to provide important mental health services in their communities. Through a series of workshops, participants will learn how to identify and address common mental illnesses, particularly those within the context of extreme crises, affecting Syrian children and adults.
