MHPSS Manual

The Manual on Community-Based Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) in Emergencies and Displacement describes the process IOM MHPSS programme managers should follow to design and implement relevant programmes in the aftermath of an emergency and with displaced populations.

While designed for IOM MHPSS programmes, the manual was compiled with the support of 100 experts from various agencies, NGOs and academic centres and links to more than 200 tools, articles and technical websites. As such, the manual is meant to be a reference for MHPSS experts working in the field, beyond IOM programming.
