First Open Access Issue Intervention Out Now

The very first open access issue of Intervention, Journal of Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Conflict Affected Areas is out now. The journal is fully available online.

After a transition from print to online publication the editorial team is proud to present this first open access issue. The journal will continue with its mission representing voices from the field of Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Humanitarian Settings.

  • Closing the gap between disaster mental health research and practice;
  • Underrepresentation of men in gender based humanitarian and refugee trauma research;
  • Marital conflict in the aftermath of genocide in Rwanda;
