Description

In 2007, the Inter Agency Standing Committee (IASC) released the IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) in Emergency Settings.  Following this, the IASC MHPSS Reference Group (RG) was formed to support global implementation of the guidelines and MHPSS integration in the Cluster system.  Uptake and implementation of the guidelines has been positive, however effective measurement of MHPSS programs’ goal and outcomes has been identified as a priority area requiring attention. 

This meeting was the first specific meeting to address these concerns.  The notes of this meeting are integrated in the minutes of the IASC MHPSS Reference Group annual meeting 2013.
