The Movement-wide Mental Health and Psychosocial Support survey was conducted by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement in 2021 to assess and monitor activities addressing mental health and psychosocial needs. The reports contain additional questions from the Roadmap for Implementation 2020-2023 working groups’ (WG) with specific interest in their Priority Action Areas.

The survey was shared in Arabic, English, French and Spanish and disseminated to all 192 NS, the IFRC and the ICRC. A similar survey will be conducted by 2023 to monitor progress throughout the years of the Roadmap implementation from 2020-2023, drawing on the baseline set by the original survey of 2019.

The 2021 global Movement-wide survey report is available in English, Spanish, French and Arabic. Resources assisting the Movement in the implementation of the Roadmap, Resolution and Policy on MHPSS can be found in the Movement Resource Room.
