The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement (the Movement) is a global humanitarian network of 80 million people that helps those facing disaster, conflict and health and social problems. It consists of the International Committee of the Red Cross, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and 192 National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies.
In December 2019, the Movement adopted a set of commitments addressing Mental Health and Psychosocial needs with the aim to strengthen the Movement’s collective response to Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) needs and to ensure early access to MHPSS, comprehensive MHPSS responses and actions addressing stigma, exclusion and discrimination.
As part of this commitment, Working Group 4 was established to demonstrate the impact and strengthen the evidence of MHPSS interventions through research, evidence, monitoring and evaluation. As strengthening evidence and developing quality interventions will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of MHPSS with a view to reaching more people with appropriate MHPSS. The consultancy will focus on the identification and development of recommendations of research tools, approaches and how to contextualize these.
