Dear WAPR Colleagues

The purpose of this brief survey is to collect initial information about the extent to which migrants and refugees with mental disorder have access to, and benefit from, psychosocial rehabilitation (PSR) programs and services in the countries in which WAPR has a presence.

We invite you to share your knowledge and experience in order to assist WAPR to improve immigrant and refugee communities' access by to effective PSR programs and services.

The survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete.

All responses are anonymous and confidential. Only aggregated data will be reported and it will not be possible to identify individual participants.

In completing and submitting the survey you give informed consent to participation in this project.
