Psychosocial Support in Humanitarian Work -new report

INEE has posted details of this report on Psychosocial Support in Humanitarian Work

So difficult -yet so important -psychosocial support.

Psychosocial support (PSS) involves helping survivors of disasters or crises resume their regular lives. It covers everything from individual counselling to re-opening schools.


IRIN asked people involved in psychosocial work at UNICEF, Médecins sans Frontières (MSF), the International Rescue Committee (IRC), Save the Children, Columbia University, and the Interagency Standing Committee Working Group on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support to describe what they do, how they determine progress, constraints to delivering this support, and how they measure their success.
