Rapid Mental Health & Psychosocial Support Situational Analysis: Haiti August – September 2021
The primary objectives of this rapid mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) situational analysis are to:
• understand the perceived and identified sources of psychosocial distress among community members affected by the earthquake in Haiti (with special focus on International Medical Corps’ area of operation);
• identify key needs for MHPSS services, traditional ways of coping, help-seeking behaviors and barriers to accessing support services;
• determine existing MHPSS actors and services, as well as gaps in services; and
• share recommendations for MHPSS programming as a part of the humanitarian
response, and advocate for increased investment in MHPSS initiatives in Haiti.
