The impact of conflict and disasters on children’s health – both physical and mental – is devastating. The psychological and social effects of emergencies can be acute in the short term, but they also undermine the long-term mental health and psychosocial well-being of those affected. Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS), and more specifically PSS represents the majority of the programming in terms of dollar value and activities.

This brief describes contributions by the Global Child Protection AoR to answers these challenges, and the areas where increased focus and support is required to ensure the well-being of children affected by emergencies.
