We work alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, taking action and bearing witness in order to respond to their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
Humanity and Inclusion has field experience of mental health and psychosocial support in emergency, post-emergency and development settings dating back to the 1990s. Although Handicap International’s remit initially covered the prevention and treatment of disabling mental health conditions resulting from war or genocide (trauma, depression, anxiety, psychosis, mental retardation), the scope was subsequently widened to take into account psychological distress resulting from numerous social and political issues (poverty, exclusion, vulnerability resulting from exile, migration, war, genocide). Today, Handicap International’s focus is broader, still taking in any situation which causes psychological distress and/or mental health disorders.
