Mental Health of the Somali community in Qatar

Mental Health of the Somali community in Qatar

WISH sponsored ‘Shida’ 2017, the Fourth Annual Forum of the Somali Community in Qatar, organized by Weyak, a Doha-based voluntary organization that works to foster understanding of mental health issues with outreach activities both regionally and within the local community. Weyak partnered with Hersare Foundation, a Somali NGO supporting vulnerable and neglected people in Somalia and the Horn of Africa, to host ‘Shida’ on April 28, in Doha.

‘Shida’ is the result of an agreement between WISH and Weyak, signed in March 2017, establishing a cooperative framework to raise awareness of mental health in Qatar.
