NEEDS ASSESSMENT REPORT: MENTAL HEALTH AND PSYCHOSOCIAL CONDITIONS IN ANBAR
Iraqis living in Anbar Governorate experienced a myriad of atrocities during the occupation of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Although ISIL has fallen, both returnees and others continue to suffer from the consequences of the conflict, including mental and psychological symptoms. This Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) assessment outlines causes of these stressors and necessary steps to improve mental health and psychosocial well-being. It also outlines returnees’ coping strategies and current gaps in MHPSS services, particularly in the Al-Qaim and Fallujah district centres of Anbar Governorate.
