The IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings enable humanitarian actors to plan, establish and co-ordinate a set of minimum multi-sectoral responses to protect and improve people’s mental health and psychosocial well-being in the midst of an emergency. The Guidelines offer essential advice on how to facilitate an integrated approach to address the most urgent mental health and psychosocial issues in emergency situations. Action sheets cover all sectors of humanitarian response work and are broken down in the following sections: matrix of Interventions, Co-ordination; Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation; Protection and Human Rights Standards; Human Resources; Community Mobilisation and Support; Health Services; Education; Dissemination of Information; Food Security and Nutrition; Shelter and Site Planning and Water and Sanitation.
