Mental Health & Psychosocial Support

Refugees and asylum seekers who have gone through forced displacement often face psychological stress from experiences in countries of origin, transit country and in the country of asylum. There are also refugees with pre-existing mental health conditions including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and psychosis who require specialized support. While many of them show remarkable resilience, some need extra support to rebuild their lives.

Maintaining mental health is crucial to the overall wellbeing of individuals. In refugee settings, lack of access to mental health professionals is often a major issue, due to financial constraint and lack of awareness.

Available services only reach a small proportion of those who need the services. UNHCR strives for the integration of MHPSS in primary healthcare for refugees and in its protection work across different sectors.

Partner Organisations

For refugees and asylum seekers, mental health and psychosocial support services are available through UNHCR partners.
