AMERA International is partnering with the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network (APRRN) to map organizations providing mental health and psychosocial services for Afghan refugees in the Global South, and to coordinate these services with legal aid provision. The project aims to:

  • Connect available MHPSS services for displaced Afghans with organizations wanting to refer Afghans for support and treatment
  • Connect Afghans directly with MHPSS services for which they can self-refer, particularly through APRRN’s upcoming infosite
  • Strengthen coordination between MHPSS services and legal aid providers representing Afghans

The project works in line with AMERA’s Therapeutic Legal Assistance Model, aiming to strengthen integrated legal and MHPSS services. AMERA is working with APRRN to increase access to complementary services to improve outcomes for displaced Afghans.
