The REducing STress via sOcial pRotEction - RESTORE - study is a collaboration between the World Bank's social protection global practice and Dr. Shabab Wahid, in Senegal. The project seeks to understand local idioms of distress, mechanisms of stigma, and lived experience of distress and disorder in rural and urban Senegal. Using this knowledge RESTORE will culturally adapt, implement, and assess the feasibility and acceptability of a community-based mental health intervention called Self help Plus, to be delivered by trained nonspecialists and integrated into existing social protection and poverty reduction initiatives.
