The Child Protection Issue Brief: Mental health and psychosocial wellbeing of children presents recommendations for strong collaboration between specialists and sectors to ensure a holistic and child-centered response that fosters the well-being of displaced and refugee children. It aims to preserve and improve the well-being of displaced and refugee children by mainstreaming psychosocial support in all aspects of its work and implementing specific psychosocial support programmes. The mitigation of immediate and long-term risks and consequences for the mental health and psychosocial well-being of individuals, families and communities is a core part of UNHCR’s protection mandate.
