Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Crisis: A Basic Necessity

Conflict, violence and disasters have devastating effects on people’s minds and bodies, and these harms are often mutually reinforcing. This session will address the acute need for commitments from countries and organizations to enable and enhance high-quality mental health and psychosocial support during and after disasters and conflicts. Participants will identify barriers to implementing and receiving mental health and psychosocial interventions in humanitarian emergencies, and they will exchange best practices and lessons learned, paving the way forward for more healthy and holistic interventions.
