Jo de Berry 
 conducted considerable research on the lives of war-affected young people in Afghanistan with UNICEF and most recently as the Children in Crisis Adviser for Save the Children USA between 2001 and 2003.

Correspondence Address:

In 2001 Save the Children and UNICEF launched new programmes in Afghanistan. The emphasis was not on mental health service delivery, but on a community-based psychosocial support strategy. The article discussed the principles of the work undertaken by the two agencies. It also explores both these research and project planning which was carried out in Kabul between 2001 and 2002.
