Nepal Earthquakes 2015: Desk Review of Existing Information with Relevance to Mental Health & Psychosocial Support

This document describes a desk review started after the April 25 and May 12 earthquakes in Nepal. The main aim of the desk review was to summarize existing information with regard to mental health and psychosocial wellbeing in Nepal.

Conducting a desk review after major emergencies is part of the 2007 ‘Inter-Agency Standing Committee Guidelines for Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergencies’
