Journey of Life Psychological Support Intervention

Research Project

This partnership with Transcultural Psychosocial Organization (TPO) Uganda investigates the effectiveness and implementation of the Journey of Life (JoL) program in Kiryandongo refugee settlement, Uganda with funding from USAID. JoL addresses the social ecologies of children and adolescents by working with caregivers, educators, and community members to understand the importance of their involvement in the protection of children. Preventive and curative measures for improving community mental health and psychosocial outcomes include bolstering coping skills, meaning-making, social functioning, and building social capital.
