CONNECTING FORCED DISPLACEMENT & MENTAL HEALTH
Between Borders is a research organisation bridging forced displacement, mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS). We work across a range of displacement contexts, including conflict, climate change, natural disasters, statelessness, and development.
We convene leaders from civil society organisations, displaced communities and the MHPSS sector to shape knowledge, awareness-raising and information-sharing through research, workshops, training and public events.
Our research aims to broaden understanding of psychological responses to displacement and the role of alternative therapies to support healing and resilience-building. We aim to open up communication channels and opportunities for collaboration across sectors to faciliate mainstreaming MHPSS in policy, practice and dialogue.
