IASC Minimum Service Package Mental Health and Psychosocial Support

IASC Minimum Service Package Mental Health and Psychosocial Support


The Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Minimum Service Package (MHPSS MSP) is an intersectoral package that outlines a set of activities that are considered to be of the highest priority in meeting the needs of emergency-affected populations, based on existing guidelines, available
evidence and expert consensus. Each activity comes with checklists of core and additional actions.

The MSP is for humanitarian actors who plan, support, coordinate, implement and evaluate humanitarian activities within and across sectors. These include government actors, MHPSS Technical Working Groups (TWGs), national and international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society and other advocacy groups, Red Cross and Red Crescent networks, UN agencies, coordinators of sectors/clusters/AoRs and donors.

Materials to facilitate implementation

The MHPSS MSP is an IASC product. The following materials can facilitate implementation but are not an integral component of the IASC product:

The MHPSS MSP web platform includes additional appendixes, links and tools, from a wide range of humanitarian partners.
The MHPSS MSP youtube channel includes introduction videos and a tour of the MHPSS MSP web platform. If you wish to receive an orientation on the MSP (remote or in-person), based on the needs of your agency and based on your context, please reach out to mhpss.refgroup@gmail.com.
