This situation analysis stems from an increasing commitment that community actors and a variety of stakeholders have put on Mental Health, including the development and wellbeing of the Somali population. As part of a twofold study, this situation analysis and the Strategy for Mental Health aim at catalyzing attention on the issue. At the same time, both documents are also an advocacy tool for practitioners, INGOs, mental health personnel and public authorities. The document is the result of a participatory process, which has engaged stakeholders through desk review work, group discussions, data collection, and consultative meetings both done in Somalia and at Nairobi level.
