REPSSI Mainstreaming Psychosocial Care and Support Series: Home-Based Care Programmes

This series is divided into 10 guides for humanitarian staff working in emergencies, which include a collection of strategically selected materials that can be used to guide staff in the integration of psychosocial and mental health support into across sector programming.

Throughout these guidelines, the emphasis is on creating nurturing and caring schools. This may take place at many different levels including: • the model of care that the school embraces • the school policies in relation to psychosocial support • the focus on educators as primary sources of psychosocial support • drawing upon the resources of learners and parents to promote psychosocial wellbeing • facilitating special projects to address specific psychosocial issues • making use of the rich diversity of tools available to facilitate psychosocial wellbeing.
