This guide builds on experiences with conducting participatory on-line MHPSS training at the IFRC Reference Centre for Psychosocial Support. It is written to encourage the use of on-line trainings that enhances the learning outcomes for participants combining technical skill with social-emotional learning.

There are many obvious advantages in moving to on-line formats both during the pandemic and beyond. The key questions we asked ourselves at the beginning of the pandemic was how to transform our participatory and scenario-based face to face trainings to a digitally inclusive experience.

This guide describes MHPSS trainings where participants have a good internet connection. Other modalities that rely on using for example mobile phones and are more inclusive of those with further needs will be explored in the future.
