Community-based Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Humanitarian Settings: Three-tied support for children and families
The CB MHPSS operational guidelines are designed and intended to help UNICEF staff and partners support and promote safe, nurturing environments for children’s recovery, psychosocial wellbeing and protection. The guidelines present an operational framework that emphasizes engaging actors at all levels (children, caregivers, families and community service providers) to design and implement MHPSS strategies. The guidelines enable humanitarian actors and communities to plan, establish and coordinate a set of minimum multisectoral responses to protect and improve people’s mental health and psychosocial wellbeing in the midst of an emergency.
