We are proud to announce the establishment of the first international Consortium on Refugees’ and Migrants’ Mental Health – CoReMH, focused primarily on countries on the transit route.
We would like to thank to our colleagues from Turkey, Greece, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Albania, Bulgaria and Serbia for joining the Consortium, as well as for their valuable contributions during our first meeting that was held today.
In the following year, CoReMH members will be devoted to identifying and addressing global and local prominent issues in mental health protection for refugees, asylum seekers and migrants, through international collaboration aiming to ensure evidence-based practice, collaborative research and data-driven advocacy work adjusted to the transit context.
More info will be announced soon!
