The MHPSS Toolkits
The MHPSS Network toolkits are collections of best practices and resources collected and curated by our staff together with the community.
This toolkit is a compilation of a range of several practice guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) in humanitarian contexts, to enable easy access to key multi-lingual resources.
The MHPSS and EiE Toolkit offers access to key documents and resources of relevance to those working in the fields of Education in Emergencies (EiE) and of Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS).
“The aim of this toolkit is to increase understanding between the two sectors, to encourage dialogue for planning and programming, and ultimately to strengthen the quality of MHPSS and education responses in emergencies.”
The IASC Common Monitoring and Evaluation Framework for MHPSS Programmes was released for field test in 2017. In 2021, the Common Framework was updated to include qualitative and quantitative means of verification (MoV) for impact-level indicators in the framework. MHPSS.net developed the IASC MHPSS M&E Framework MoV toolkit to accompany the framework and serve as a resource to maintain and disseminate these tools in a single, easy to use format.
“The monitoring and evaluation of MHPSS programmes can often be a challenge for practitioners and agencies in the field. The landmark IASC Common Monitoring and Evaluation Framework was developed to provide a shared basis on which the impact of diverse interventions could be assessed, and the inclusion of recommended means of verification in the 2021 update will offer significant additional support to those trying to assess the impact of their work in the field”
The Children and Families MHPSS Resource Collection offers access to a wide range of key materials that are relevant to mental health and psychosocial support work with children and families across humanitarian and development settings.
“The aim of this collection of resources is to provide practitioners, policy-makers and others who work to support children and families with a easy-to-access, first-stop repository when they need to find materials to support their efforts across the programme cycle and beyond.”
