WHO and International Medical Corps are now accepting applications for a 2024 mhGAP-HIG capacity building course on integrating mental health with general health care in humanitarian settings.
The course is offered through the “Strengthening organizational capacity for integrating mental health care in health services in humanitarian settings through training and mentoring” project funded by USAID’s Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance.
The course, which is meant for mental health experts and general health workers with considerable MHPSS expertise, and prioritizes the capacity building of local non-governmental organizations (LNGOs) operating in humanitarian emergencies, is comprised of: a) mhGAP-HIG Training of Trainers and Supervisors (TOTS) in the clinical assessment and management and mhGAP-HIG priority mental, neurological and substance use conditions and b) mhGAP-HIG implementation aspects. The course also includes a follow-on capacity building phase in which organizations will implement mhGAP-HIG with tailored mentoring and technical support from WHO and International Medical Corps.
This course will be implemented in French with a start date in January 2024.
