Baltic Sea Emergencies - Four-day training in MHPSS

The overall aim of the four-day training in the Baltic Sea Red Cross Societies is for participants to be familiar with principles for mental health and psychosocial support in humanitarian settings and to know how to intervene as an MHPSS focal point in times of disaster. Beforehand, participants have to be informed about the mandate of their National Society and know about the role the National Society has in disasters, as this differs from one National Society to another. It should be noted, that the training has a focus on soft and practical skills the MHPSS focal points need to possess to lead interventions to minimize the effect of mass trauma events. The training is to be participatory, inviting participants to bring their own experiences and dilemmas into the training environment. The session is developed for BALTPREP Project Enhancing Regional Preparedness and Response Capacity for major Accidents in the Baltic Sea Region 2019 to 2020. It can be adapted for other programmes and trainings of responders; please adapt and tailor to the specific country-level context as needed.
