Over the past several years, mental health and psycho-social support (MHPSS) has been receiving increased recognition as an essential component within humanitarian interventions. Although this increased recognition has also led to greater investment in MHPSS field research, there still lies an evident divide between academic institutions and the humanitarian actors on the field. As such, this one day forum aims to merge the world of academia with that of humanitarian action taking place within the Syrian crisis. Through a shared platform composed of different stakeholders (academics, humanitarian aid organizations, policy makers), the forum will aim to provide an open space to share research findings, experiences, challenges, best practices as well as encourage new opportunities to foster further collaboration within the humanitarian context.
