“Improving access of youth to evidence-based mental health prevention interventions in Lebanon”

The National Mental Health Programme (NMHP) at the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) in collaboration with Soins Infirmiers et Developpement communautaire (SIDC), and with UNICEF‘s support have worked on developing, adopting and adapting three evidence based manuals that aim to promote mental health and wellbeing and prevent substance use among youth aged 10-18 years. These manuals were developed as part of the implementation of strategic objectives of the “Mental Health and Substance Use Strategy for Lebanon 2015-2020” and the “Inter-ministerial Substance Use Response Strategy for Lebanon 2016-2021”. The process was done in collaboration with many local and international actors working in Lebanon and involved persons from each of the targeted populations.
