For the first time, journalists from the Middle East are participating in The Rosalynn Carter Fellowships for Mental Health Journalism Program.
Fellows from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar joined the 20th class of fellows this year in a program to reduce the stigma of those living with mental health conditions. The Carter Center partnered with the Qatar Foundation’s World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) to implement this program in Qatar and with the Al Jalila Foundation to implement the program in the UAE.
