The purpose of the HEARD Project is to leverage a global partnership to generate, synthesize, and use evidence to improve policy and program implementation in low and middle-income countries. With funding from USAID’s Victims of Torture Program, the HEARD Project supports four studies to better understand the effectiveness and implementation of community-level mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) interventions, with an emphasis on the PSS intervention components and impacts. A fifth, related study is being funded by GIZ and will be implemented by War Child in Jordan. The HEARD MHPSS Cross-Study Learning Collaborative supports these studies by providing an avenue for knowledge and information sharing across the different study teams.
