MHPSS progress in the Movement

Addressing mental health and psychosocial needs is a central part of the Movement’s broader objectives to prevent and alleviate human suffering, to protect life, health and dignity and to promote health and social welfare among individuals and communities. All Movement components (National Societies, the IFRC and ICRC) are expected to fully implement the comprehensive measures critical to addressing mental health and psychosocial needs as captured by the MHPSS Policy and Resolution.

Where does one start? On this page you will find more information on MHPSS in the Movement through the Movement-wide MHPSS surveys from respectively 2019, 2021 and 2023.

MHPSS progress 2023

The MHPSS Roadmap took its starting point from where the Movement was at present in terms of providing MHPSS services in 2019. A survey was conducted on MHPSS activities within the Movement which showed that the vast majority of National Societies, the IFRC and the ICRC do provide MHPSS services. Psychosocial support activities are the most common type. MHPSS services are frequently integrated into other humanitarian activities, though National Societies also provide standalone psychosocial support and mental health services. The 2019 survey served as a snapshot and baseline of 2019 activities but did not provide information about the quality of services being implemented or the potential variation in approaches used across the Movement. The survey was repeated in 2021 and 2023, followed by regional data breakdowns.
