What kind of prior knowledge do I need to actually be able to implement the methods (both within MHPSS and the SEAs)?

        A training in the tools is of great importance to be able to grasp what it is exactly about and to understand how it would work in a school environment. Having said that however, I guess you need no specific knowledge in order to be trained in the tools and start using them.

          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?

            Indeed Bilal. In both cases (SEAs/MHPSS), you don’t need any specific knowledge to start the training. The aim of our platform is to provide you with the necessary resources so that you can start the training and then the implementation of the practices.
