Following the completion and launch of the IASC Guidelines for Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings in 2007, the IASC Working Group agreed to the formation of an IASC MHPSS Reference Group that is primarily focused on the dissemination and mainstreaming of the Guidelines. The MHPSS Reference Group now consists of over 30 organisations drawn from United Nations and Intergovernmental organisations, Nongovernmental organisations and Red Cross and Red Crescent agencies.
Last year Antares Foundation became a member of the Reference Group. We attended the Annual meeting in Geneva and presented together with IFRC a session on staff support. As result a webinar was also organized by the MHPSS network group on staff support to which Antares participated.
