About Amplifying Impact! ISSUE II
This second Issue of the Amplifying Impact! Quarterly Newsletter showcases the impact of TPO Uganda’s mental health and psychosocial support interventions. As highlighted in our First Issue, a different thematic area of TPO Uganda’s strategic focus will be published every quarter. For this focus period October-December 2017, Amplifying Impact! presents implementation stories, achievements and lessons in our psychosocial support and mental health responses across close to fifteen districts in Northern, Karamoja, West Nile, and Eastern Uganda.
One key achievement herein is steps made towards consolidating and standardizing psychosocial support and mental health interventions through compilation of a psycho-educative Manual. This is also our visible effort towards adapting the World Health Organization’s Inter-Agency Standing Committee Guidelines on mental health and psychosocial support in humanitarian settings. The Editor’s pick of visualized data, impact stories and testimonies from our work will further provide you with insight on the magnitude of change created by our interventions, how we reach and serve most vulnerable populations such as women, youth, girls and children in fragile and emerging settings.
