ABSTRACT
The article presents an interview with Mustafa Elmasri, who works with victims of crimes against humanity and survivors of genocide. When asked what kind of mental health care is provided in countries such as the Middle East and Africa, Elmasri says that there is a lack of psychosocial expertise. He comments on emergency mental health services in underserved countries. Elmasri believes that each mental health intervention should be adapted to the culture of the country it is given in.
