Training Guide: Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergencies

Every emergency is different in terms of severity and complexity and emergency responses including mental health and psychosocial support must be adapted to the particular context. However, it is both possible and vital to establish universal capability and coherence in our MHPSS responses across the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement. It is our hope that this training package will be a foundation for National Societies in establishing, and building upon, their MHPSS responses in emergencies and to support the development of strong and competent staff and volunteer teams.

This MHPSS in Emergencies training aims to prepare MHPSS responders, disaster managers, and emergency team leaders for work in the field by building understanding of basic concepts of MHPSS in emergencies as well as planning and implementing PSS activities. It is for MHPSS focal points from the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Movement and humanitarian organizations responsible for initiating or supporting the overall mental health and psychosocial activities and interventions during emergencies. The training modules in this guide have been developed to be flexible and adapted to different contexts and training needs. The guide and accompanying materials include the information and materials you will need to design and facilitate MHPSS in Emergencies training.
