We Stand With Beirut - Mental Health Support
Adyan collaborates with IDRAAC & Embrace
Under our pledge of solidarity,
ADYAN was keen to stand with the people of Beirut in every possible way.
Mental health was an essential aspect to consider knowing the Lebanese economic, social and psychological situation, especially after the unprecedented Beirut blast on August 4.
To meet the urgent mental health needs of affected individuals,
ADYAN initiated a mental health support project, in collaboration with IDRAAC and Embrace; two main non-profit organizations that work to raise awareness around mental health in Lebanon.
Adyan signed a 6-month agreement with IDRAAC to support it in reaching out to the community and providing services which can improve mental well-being.
Starting from December 2020, a fund of $42,000 from ‘We Stand With Beirut’ contributes to providing first aid assessment and support for 200 individuals, in addition to psychiatric and psychological treatment and follow-up sessions - face to face support and evidence-based treatment - for 60 individuals.
IDRAAC Institute for Development, Research, Advocacy and Applied Care is the first nonprofit organization dedicated to mental health in Lebanon and the Arab World and is located in Beirut, Lebanon. Founded in 1997, IDRAAC delivers free community services, awareness programs and world class mental health research. It works on awareness, research and community services levels.
