Mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) play an important role in the reintegration of people formerly affiliated with violent extremist groups. It also plays a role in PVE by exploring mental health in radicalization and how psychosocial support – together with other activities like livelihoods and capacity building – can help strengthen intervention impact. However, despite increasing global MHPPS attention in peacebuilding, there are still many unknown factors, challenges, and risks associated with its PVE application.
Learn about key considerations for programming, including creating the appropriate conditions for providing, monitoring, and evaluating MHPSS in PVE. And gain an understanding of PVE MHPSS applications through UNDP best practices in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan – including online youth psychosocial counselling, psychosocial support training for probation officers, and mentorship support in apprenticeship schemes.
