This course will focus on how to design mental health interventions to fit the unique mental health needs of populations living in low-resource settings (such as low and middle-income countries, conflict-affected areas, and marginalized communities within high-income countries) . It will explore existing intervention models and methods for adapting interventions/therapies to fit the culture, context, and experiences of mental health distress in such settings. Students will gain tools to adapt interventions and examine the socio-cultural forces that impact the implementation, delivery, and assessment of mental health interventions in low-resource settings. Note: Students enrolled in programs other than the NSSR Psychology program should register for UTNS 6451.
