Please join us at ODI’s offices on 5 July to launch the upcoming edition of ODI’s Humanitarian Exchange magazine – co-edited by Elrha – a special edition focusing on evidence-based mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) for people affected by crises.

There will be a panel discussion, chaired by Wendy Fenton, Coordinator of the Humanitarian Practice Network, ODI, including the following speakers:

  • Nour Kik – Policy and Advocacy Coordinator in the National Mental Health Programme, Ministry of Public Health in Lebanon
  • Natalya Kostandova – Program Coordinator, International Medical Corps (IMC)
  • Dr Alison Schafer – Technical Officer in the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse, World Health Organisation

The panel will be discussing the following:

What progress has been made in strengthening the evidence base on effective mental health and psychosocial support approaches in humanitarian contexts and translating this into good practice? What are the barriers to implementing MHPSS interventions for people affected by humanitarian crises? Drawing on articles in the latest issue of Humanitarian Exchange magazine and their own research and experience, panellists discuss the opportunities and challenges in providing mental health and psychosocial support in emergencies, and offer insights for academics and operational actors working together to strengthen the evidence base on which good practice depends.

The event will also be live streamed online, with the ability to ask questions.
