I AM GPH Podcast
I AM GPH Podcast Healthright Frontline Health Workers: Safina Yusuf, Uganda

HealthRight and I AM GPH have partnered to bring you this 4-part podcast series profiling four different Frontline health workers (FHWs) and their work in four different countries. Northern Uganda is home to one of the largest refugee settlements in the world. The majority of refugees residing there are South Sudanese women and children who have fled conflict and violence. While there are limited data on the mental health needs in this population, HealthRight has observed high rates of depression, anxiety and PTSD among refugees residing in these settlements. In this episode, we speak with Safina Yusuf, a Ugandan HealthRight interventionist who is working to implement an intervention called, Self-Help Plus (SH+), which is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that addresses psychological distress resulting from significant adversity without relying on trained mental health professionals. Safina discusses her view from the front lines of the global mental health response: life in the settlement, her work building mental health capacity, and Self-Help Plus (SH+).
