October 10 is World Mental Health Day, an international day for global mental health education, awareness and policy advocacy. This year’s theme is “Make Mental Health for All a Global Priority”.
To mark the importance of this day, The PS Centre has created easily shareable infographics and an introductory video training package for Red Cross Crescent staff and volunteers working with or planning to set up child friendly spaces in humanitarian settings. The PS Centre will be participating in discussions, conducting trainings and sharing resources in the days leading up to World Mental Health Day.
Below is an overview of resources created for, and events leading up to, World Mental Health Day 2022.
PS Centre World Mental Health Day Infographics
In line with “Making Mental Health for All a Global Priority” and to make Mental Health resources and knowledge more accessible, the PS Centre has created these infographics in hopes to translate complex and challenging concepts into simple steps.
The infographic can be printed in A3, but a larger version is also available. Contact PS Centre Communications Officer Jesper Guhle, email@example.com , for an A1 print-ready version of the poster.
Video training: Child Friendly Spaces in Humanitarian Settings
The PS Centre has created a new three session video series ‘Child Friendly Spaces in Humanitarian Settings’ as an introductory training that includes setting up of spaces, activities, supporting children in distress and ways to include caregivers. The videos and the accompanying workbook has both exercises if you follow the training as an individual or as a group.
