Assessing Mental Health and Psychosocial Needs and Resources: Toolkit for Humanitarian Settings (in English and Russian)
WHO UNHCR MHPSS needs assessment toolkit

WHO and UNHCR have just launched a new publication on Assessing Mental Health and Psychosocial Needs and Resources: Toolkit for Humanitarian Settings. The toolkit is now available in Russian as well.

The toolkit was developed in response to frequent requests from the field for advice on assessment of mental health and psychosocial issues in humanitarian settings. Although a range of assessment tools exist, what has been missing is an overall approach that clarifies when to use which tool for what purpose. This document offers an approach to assessment that should help to review information that is already available and only collect new data that will be of practical use.

This document is written primarily for public health actors. As the social determinants of mental health and psychosocial problems occur across sectors, half of the tools in the accompanying toolkit cover mental health and psychosocial assessment issues relevant to other sectors as well as the health sector.

Hard copies can be ordered from the WHO bookstore: [email protected].
