Disability and Inclusion in MHPSS

The Disability and Inclusion Thematic Group of the IASC MHPSS Reference Group has developed this document through an consultative, participatory and inclusive process. This document aims to (1) ensure that MHPSS programming in emergency settings is accessible and inclusive of persons with all types of disabilities and (2) support the deinstitutionalization of persons living in long-stay institutions and stand-alone hospitals. It provides an overview of challenges faced in emergency settings and detailed operational instructions to ensure that the key action areas for inclusive MHPSS services are addressed across sectors and throughout any emergency, from the preparedness phase to the emergency provision of services and the recovery phase.
