Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) in the context of the crises in Syria and Iraq – Guiding framework for development cooperation
The framework was produced by GIZ in cooperation with German civil society actors and freelance psychologists working on MHPSS with refugees and IDP in the Middle East region and in Germany in the context of the crises in Syria and Iraq. It serves as guidance in the design, implementation and assessment of PSS-measures. It includes a set of quality criteria for PSS-projects and explains the advantages of trauma-sensitive development cooperation. The framework is a living document and feedback is very welcome.
