Community-based psychological support – Module 5: Populations with special needs
International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
The mandate of the Red Cross – Red Crescent is to care for the world’s most vulnerable people. Such care includes meeting their material, social and psychological needs, while at the same time recognizing that all people have a vital role to play in social and community structures, and no matter how vulnerable, they still have resources to offer in terms of knowledge, skills and experience.
This module describes those populations that are likely to be particularly vulnerable with respect to psychological needs, and who may require specific attention.
