The Mental Health & Psychosocial Support Network (MHPSS.net) is a global platform for connecting people, networks and organizations, for sharing resources and for building knowledge related to mental health and psychosocial support both in emergency settings and in situations of adversity.

MHPSS.net is a hosted online platform that enables members to share resources, join groups and interact with others, based on their work and interests. The platform also plays a role in mobilizing capacities, resources and supporting coordination around MHPSS response during emergencies such as the COVID-19 outbreak.
