Lebanon's mental health care system is struggling – despite recent governmental and international programs.Private insurance often covers typical hospital and clinic visits, but Dr. Joseph El Khoury, a psychiatrist at AUBMC, explained that this is often not the case with psychiatric care.Nevertheless, Khoury noted that oftentimes, even the assistance provided by the ministry is not sufficient.According to Khoury, however, the country still has a long way to go to expand coverage. Despite the ministry's 2015 strategy, he noted that there are still serious shortages of care. According to Khoury, this is one of the primary barriers to access.The fund has provided assistance to 31 patients.The fund is limited to covering $1,000 of care per patient.
