Mental Health Support

By Ali Mahmoud | Project Leader

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.

Adyan is also still partnering with Embrace to support its “Mental Health & Trauma Response to Beirut Explosion” project.
Adyan’s support contributed to increasing the hotline’s operating hours and funding patient’s psychological consultations, psychiatric treatment and medications. 

Embrace Response Figures

Founded in 2013, Embrace is a Lebanese NGO that works to raise awareness about mental health and suicide across Lebanon through yearly national campaigns and direct outreach and awareness efforts in all areas of the country.
It runs the Embrace LifeLine, the first national emotional support and suicide prevention helpline in Lebanon.
