Abstract

Mental health interventions are a growing part of humanitarian aid, based on generalised descriptions of crisis-affected people in desperate need of psychological help. But does framing hardship in these terms detract from political backdrops? Investigating self-help psychosocial interventions for refugees in northern Uganda, Costanza Torre questions interventions that risk shifting the focus from urgent socio-economic issues.
