We seek to facilitate research of mental health in low income settings. Much of what is known about psychology comes from developed countries, while scant research on psychology exists in low resource settings.

Our approach is to investigate the relationship between culture and mental health, learn from traditional approaches to mental illness, and work to improve knowledge systems in low resource settings.
Current Activities
  • IMERSE has recently completed a thorough initial mental health needs assessment in Swaziland. We are currently documenting and presenting the findings of this assessment.
  • We are in the process of starting the second phase of the  mental health Needs Assessment. This phase is focused on mental health at the community level.
