- Conducting implementation research on the scale up of School Mental Health Program (SMHP) in Pakistan, and translating research outputs for Iran, Jordan, UAE and Egypt.
- Developing a collaborative network of institutions, researchers, policy partners and community stakeholders engaged in implementing child mental health with a focus upon the SMHP.
