• UNICEF has developed a global guidance on community-based Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (CB-MHPSS), including a framework that clearly shows the shift away from a Child Friendly Space (CFS) focused approach to a more community-based approach. The compendium of resources supplements the global guidance through providing a set of resources that can be used in different field settings.

    The compendium aims to strengthen UNICEF capacity for MHPSS programming consistent with the IASC Guidelines for MHPSS in Emergencies and described by the 9 circles of support in the UNICEF operational framework.

    The compendium is a compiled set of resources, already being used by UNICEF and partners, both national and international, in diverse settings.
