IOM Rapid assessment of mental health and psychosocial needs in Nargizlia 1 camp
The International Organization for Migration (IOM), has been actively providing emergency mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) in Nergizlia 1, since the 05th of January, 2017. A formalised needs assessment was delayed in order to provide Psychological First Aid (PFA) to the newly displaced. As of the 23rd of February 1,520 families were residing within Nergizlia. In order to develop a comprehensive and community-tailored MHPSS program, an assessment was conducted to capture a snapshot of the MHPSS needs within the camp.
The aim of the assessment was to identify the most vulnerable persons within the camp, the prevalence of suffering and the issues and needs within the camp that could be addressed through MHPSS programming.
