    Hi Pelin!

    As Bilal mentioned there is no need for prior knowledge to implement MHPSS. That being said when receiving an MHPSS methods training there needs to be a strong introduction to what is Mental Health and Psychosocial Wellbeing highlighting that we all have Mental Health which exists on a continuum and that some people might need additional specialised support.

    There are some key skills and knowledge we need when we implement MHPSS, this is to understand that MHPSS is perceived differently within different communities, creating a safe space that empowers and promotes the dignity of those we are working with and doing a mapping of the specialised services that one can refer to within the community you are working in.

    It would be interesting to know from your own experience what would have helped you to implement MHPSS in your setting?
