Operational Guidance Distance MHPSS Services in Refugee and Internally Displaced Camp Settings

The purpose of this document is to explain the process of moving existing in-person mental health counseling services to distance MHPSS support for populations in internally displaced persons camps in Kachin state, Myanmar undertaken by the Applied Mental Health Research Group (AMHR) at Johns Hopkins University, along with local partner organizations. AMHR is sharing this information to provide an example of adaptation and implementation of existing services in a low-resource setting for a conflict-affected population. We hope that our example can provide some operational guidance for other organizations as they look at MHPSS programming in their respective areas.
