Poster Presentation Mental Health Symposium Munchen

During the 9th International Symposium: Global Mental Health – Mental Health in Developing Countries, 27th to 28th October 2017 in Munich, Germany, organized by CIHLMU Center for International Health at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU), we had the opportunity to present our ongoing study that aims to strengthen the evidence for Pyschological First Aid.

During the poster session, Kimberly Stam presented the preliminary results from the interview and mapping phase of the study. The aim of this phase was to understand the roll out of Psychological First Aid trainings and the experiences of people involved during the Ebola Virus Outbreak in Liberia and Sierra Leone. Further she presented the study design, measurements and timeframe of the randomized control trial that was conducted this year in Sierra Leone.
