The PS Centre proved itself when we got MHPSS into a Resolution and Policy. It’s managed to integrate MHPSS into IFRC and the work. Now nobody questions whether non-physical health is important, and everybody recognises that it’s something we need to deal with. MHPSS is high on the to-do list of National Societies in Europe, and without the Centre and the consistent push, this wouldn’t have happened.

In 2022, an independent evaluation and review of the PS Centre activities between 2015-2022 was completed. It is a retrospective review of the activities of the Centre, including its achievements and the factors that have contributed to or hindered those achievements. This summary covers the highlights of the 80-page Evaluation Report: “Evaluation of the IFRC Psychosocial Centre – A Review of activities and functions 2015-2022″ (2022).
