After the mass displacement caused by the ISIL crisis, returning community members in Iraq are subject to numerous stressors caused by various traumatic experiences including the experience of displacement, the struggle to preserve basic living conditions, and uncertainty about the future. This mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) assessment outlines the existing mental health and psychosocial well-being needs, coping strategies of returnees, and gaps in MHPSS services in Al-Eitha and Ganous — two villages in the Shirqat district, Salah Al-Din Governorate. The assessment also examines the relationships between returnees and their neighbours or other community members.
