The purpose of the INEE Guidance Note on Psychosocial Support is to clarify the importance of supporting the psychosocial wellbeing of children and youth, and to offer specific strategies for how to incorporate psychosocial support (PSS) into education responses. This resource addresses a gap in the tools that are currently available to educators and professionals operating in emergency and crisis contexts, providing PSS guidance that is specifically oriented to the education sector.

This Guidance Note encourages more intentional and consistent implementation of practical, high-quality psychosocial interventions on the education frontlines by teachers, education administrators, counselors, and other education personnel. It is useful for government entities, ministries, policy makers, community groups, humanitarian workers, parents, peers, and families for planning, programming, policy, and advocacy purposes. The content is also useful for those working in related sectors, including protection, child protection, mental and public health, and others.
