Psychosocial Program Seeking Well-Being and Professionalizing Care in Sri Lanka


Presidential elections in January 2015 and parliamentary elections the following August promised sweeping changes to Sri Lanka’s political landscape and brought new hopes for reconciliation, restoration, and healing after the 26-year civil war, which ended in 2009.
