The profound human suffering we witness globally today defies adequate expression. Disasters and emergencies take a heavy toll, affecting physical health as well as mental health and well-being. Amidst conflict, financial constraints, and other adversities, prioritizing MHPSS remains crucial within the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement. This year’s MHPSS Survey Report provides a glimpse into the extensive MHPSS efforts undertaken by the Movement. For a comprehensive understanding, see the full report

The progress report provides an overview of the mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) activities implemented or planned to be implemented across the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement including challenges and key factors impacting implementation. The data is collected through a Movement-wide MHPSS survey that has been conducted as a follow up-survey to two global surveys conducted in 2019 and 2021. The 2019 survey provided a baseline dataset on mental health and/or psychosocial support activities carried out by the components of the Movement – National Societies (NS), the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). A total of 163 NS, the IFRC and the ICRC participated. This report presents the 2023 data in relation to the 2021 and 2019 datasets to compare the advancements of MH and/or PSS in the Movement.
