The department of Psychology at Mid Sweden University has, in collaboration with the County Council of Jämtland, developed a cost effective model for early assessment and intervention of mental health issues for refugees. The model involves contributions from students at the Clinical Master of Science in Psychology. As part of their educational program, students will participate in both assessment and preventive intervention of mental ill-health. This approach will not only meet the needs for resources, above all, it will give the students experience and competences in an area where there is a great need for knowledge.

The project is funded by the Department of Psychology at Mid Sweden University and the Asylum-, Migration-, and Integration Foundation, administered by the Migration Agency.
