UNHCR Ethiopia | MHPSS Needs Assessment for Children in Alemwach 2023

Globally, it is estimated by WHO that 22% of forcibly displaced people suffer from a men-tal disorder (Charlson, et al., 2019). Children make up to almost half of the displaced pop-ulations and are most vulnerable and at increased risk in times of emergencies (Dangmann, Dybdahl, & Solberg, 2022). According to UNICEF, “prolonged conflict, mass displacement, violence, exploitation, terrorism, poverty, outbreaks, intensifying natural disasters and cli-mate change can have a catastrophic impact on children’s behaviour and emotions as well as learning and development in the short and long term” (UNICEF, 2018) (UNICEF, 2023). Studies show that children and families have shown great resilience, once they are safe, have their basic needs met, and have access to social and community support (UNICEF, 2023).
