About us

The Caring for Carers (C4C) project seeks to assess the impact of online clinical supervision on the well-being of mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) practitioners, as well as service-user-reported satisfaction and quality of services when working with Syrian and Rohingya displaced communities in Turkey, Syria, and Bangladesh. It aims to evaluate the program's acceptability and appropriateness by considering the perspectives of various stakeholders, utilizing a mixed-method, longitudinal, quasi-experimental, community-based participatory research approach within a realist evaluation framework.

The supportive clinical supervision, designed by experienced Australian clinical psychologists and supervisors, aims to enhance clinical competencies based on professional standards. It involves Australian mental health professionals trained in supervision and local supervisors with professional experience and cultural insight, co-facilitating the fortnightly online supervision session with a group of 4 to 6 practitioners. MHPSS practitioners were recruited through project partners, Hope Revival Organization in Turkey and Northwest Syria, and Dhaka University in Bangladesh.
