A thematic review on mental health and psychosocial support in Afghanistan has just been published. The review explores existing literature on mental health and psychosocial well-being of both in-country and refugee Afghan populations to assess the current evidence and describe mental healthcare systems, including government programmes and community-based interventions.

For more information, see the study: Afghan mental health and psychosocial well-being: thematic review of four decades of research and interventions (2023).
