MHPSS.net Presentation on New Tools at MHPSS Reference Group Annual Meeting 2017
This presentation provides an update on two new tools developed by MHPSS.net in 2017:
1) An online Emergency Toolkit which aims to provide MHPSS practitioners, policy and decision-makers easily-accessible information on resources and tools related to mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) that are useful in the case of an emergency.
2) An online 4Ws mapping tool which provides for a real time experience in entering data by agencies, with an automated analysis of key areas needed for coordination and gap identification in MHPSS. The online version also allows for up to date information about agencies and their work, that can be filtered by the user to view data by: agency name, focus of work, level of intervention (related to the IASC-pyramid), among other categories collected through the online mapping tool.
