Bringing Mental Health Journalism Training to Qatar

Accountable Care in Qatar

In December 2015, The Carter Center and WISH hosted a policy briefing with local stakeholders at Weill Cornell Medicine –Qatar (WCM-Q) to examine issues of mental health. Enhancing journalists’ abilities to cover mental health was identified as key to achieving this goal. The Carter Center subsequently invited WISH to select a number of journalists to take part in its fellowship programme.

In 2016, WISH selected four Doha-based journalists to participate in the Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism (RCJF), a programme brought to Qatar through a partnership between WISH and The Carter Center in June 2016. The training took place at The Carter Center, in Atlanta, Georgia, from 12–14 September, 2016.
The inaugural fellows were Buthaina Al Janahi, Aney Matthews, Tarek Bazley and Kathy Hearn.
