Mental Health and Psychosocial Support

The Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) Program contributes to enhancing the psychosocial welfare of staff, volunteers and recipients. MHPSS refers to measures aimed at protecting or promoting the psychosocial well-being of recipients and/or the treatment of psychological disorders. The Society’s MHPSS Program aims at:

  1. Promoting a safe and supportive working environment in addition to reducing stress levels among staff, volunteers and their families due to the ongoing conflict;
  2. Developing the skills and capacities of disaster/emergency response personnel so they can respond to psychosocial needs during emergencies;
  3. Building mental health resilience in communities affected by the ongoing conflict, and promoting flexible livelihoods.
