The Global Mental Health & Psychosocial Support Network utilizes a multi-layered approach to provision of care and support. Communities that experience trauma and adversity may be affected in different ways and require different types of care and support. Our delivery of mental health and psychosocial support and services is aligned with the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Guidelines for Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings and the World Health Organization Mental Health Gap Action Program (mhGAP).
