An evaluation of trauma-informed support, skills, and psychoeducation interventions provided by CHWs on depressive symptoms, dysfunction, post-traumatic stress, traumatic grief and anxiety symptoms was conducted in the northern Dohuk region of Kurdistan Iraq. Recruited community health workers included pharmacists, nurses, and physician assistants without any prior formal mental health training. The supportive counseling program had statistically and clinical significant impacts on the primary outcomes of depression and dysfunction and significant, but smaller impacts on anxiety.
