IOM Türkiye's Psychosocial Mobile Teams (PMTs) work in strategic locations, focusing on remote and rural areas where large migrant and refugee communities with particularly vulnerable individuals and families reside. Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) activities for adults and children are tailored to the needs of refugees, migrants, and host community members and incorporate their ideas as well.


The theme for this year's World Mental Health Day, observed on October 10th every year, is "Make mental health and well-being for all a global priority." IOM Türkiye Psychosocial Mobile Teams in İstanbul, Gaziantep, and Karamanmaraş organized awareness-raising sessions and outdoor and recreational activities with women and children to improve their psychological well-being. This allowed the participants to come together and socialize and build connections and make new friends. Furthermore, in line with this year's theme, the participants shared messages to discuss, promote and develop self-love and self-care habits.
