NEW mhGAP Training of Trainers and Supervisors (ToTS) Training manual

World Health Organization, Eds.: WHO, (2017)


For Field testingThe interactive teaching skills taught during the ToTS training are the same as those used in the mhGAP Training of Health-care Providers (ToHP) training manual. Thus, the ToTS participants can learn and practise using these teaching techniques whilst familiarizing themselves with the mhGAP ToHP training materials. Time has been built into the ToTS training to ensure that participants receive and can integrate feedback from their peers and the master trainer as they learn and develop their skills as trainers.

Singing to the Lions. A Guide to Overcoming Fear and Violence in Our Lives. Supplement

Brakarsh, J.; L. Steinitz, Eds.: Catholic Relief Services CRS, (2018)


Singing to the Lions is a free training package (facilitator’s guide, supplement and video) by CRS, that is designed to help children and youth lessen the impact of violence and abuse in their lives. The main component is a three-day workshop where participants learn skills that can help them transform their lives and no longer feel dominated by fear. Although the workshop is aimed at young people and includes games, art and songs, it can also be used to help adults take action on aspects of their lives that cause fear and, in so doing, become better parents and caregivers.

The Adolescent Brain: A second window of opportunity

United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), (2017)


In 2016, UNICEF hosted The Adolescent Brain: A second window of opportunity, a symposium that brought together experts in adolescent neuroscience to discuss this emerging science and how we can apply it to support all adolescents – but especially those already facing risks to their well-being, including poverty, deprivation, conflict and crisis. The articles in this compendium elaborate on some of the ideas shared at the symposium. Together, they provide a broad view of the dynamic interactions among physical, sexual and brain development that take place during adolescence. They highlight some of the risks to optimal development – including toxic stress, which can interfere with the formation of brain connections, and other vulnerabilities unique to the onset of puberty and independence. They also point to the opportunities for developing interventions that can build on earlier investments in child development – consolidating gains and even offsetting the effects of deficits and traumas experienced earlier in childhood.

Conflict and Health 2013, 7:23 (1 November 2013) Mental health problems, particularly anxiety and mood disorders, are prevalent in the setting of humanitarian emergencies, both natural and man-made disasters. Evidence regarding best strategies for therapeutic interventions is sparse. Medecins Sans Frontieres has been providing mental health services during emergencies for over two decades, and here the authors compare data from four programs. They conclude that mental health is an essential part of a health care response to humanitarian emergencies. In a variety of settings, they show the positive results of brief interventions
