Recognizing the emotional impact of calamities, UNICEF promotes guidelines to aid in recovery

In an effort to help communities cope with the emotional and social suffering caused by conflict and natural disasters, UNICEF and partners are today exploring how collaboration on common approaches supports the recovery process for children and communities in emergencies.

“One of UNICEF’s priorities in emergencies is to protect and improve the mental health and psychosocial well-being of communities in crisis. We know from experience in many emergencies that the very real and profound distress among communities and the scale of such problems can only be effectively addressed by collaboration among all key actors." said Amanda Melville, Child Protection, UNICEF. "

The IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergencies settings provide a framework that facilitates interagency collaboration and brings together actors from different sectors such as health, education and protection around a common vision,” “These guidelines have been used in many countries to identify common priorities and gaps, flag harmful practices and identify useful practices and develop common approaches. They have helped us in our mission to better support communities in crisis.”
