The Implementation Science Collaborative (ISC) champions and facilitates the use of data to improve health interventions, practices, programs, and policies in low and middle-income countries. CUNY (CIMH-CIRGH) serves in an anchor role within the ISC, particularly in advancing the mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) Learning Collaborative and MHPSS solutions for victims of torture and those living in emergency contexts.  

With support from a strategic constellation of ISC partners, CUNY (CIMH-CIRGH) leads the MHPSS Learning Collaborative, which fosters joint learning, accelerate data liberation, and advance evidence advocacy and uptake of community-level MHPSS interventions through: 

Quarterly network convenings with practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and donors to solve implementation challenges and ideate programmatic and research strategies

Harmonization and synthesis of wellbeing, distress, coping, and functioning outcomes among five MHPSS interventions for displaced and conflict-affected populations

Knowledge dissemination through cross-study publications, the ISC MHPSS webinar series, the MHPSS Knowledge Hub and Intervention Database, and other evidence-to-use products
