[Health/Protection] Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Sub Working Group - Jordan

The MHPSS Working Group is a sub-sector of both the Protection (psychosocial support) and Health (clinical mental health) Sectors. Activities are guided by and organized using the IASC Intervention Pyramid. MHPSS actors will reserve specialized supportive services which provide clinical mental health treatment under level four while ensuring strong coordination and referral pathways are in place and secured at level one, two, and three. Integration will occur through the support of CBOs, home-based care for families and individuals not able or ready to access formal care, and support to community based protection services. In 2013, more than 110,694 children (64,657 girls and 46,037 boys) and 42,273 adults (32,463 women and 9,810 men) benefitted from psychosocial support provided by actors in the MHPSS sub-sector. In 2014, MHPSS actors will continue to support the MoSD, FPD and MoH in their efforts to integrate psycho-social programming into the national structure of care. Support will also be provided specifically to the MoH in accordance with their national mental health strategy for adults, children and adolescents. This approach includes; specialized services, preventive strategies, comprehensive interventions and efficient referrals.
