Understanding MHPSS and Situational Analysis in Gaza

Organized by
Inter-agency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE)
5 March 2024, 1:00pm - 2:30pm (UTC)
Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS)

As a result of the continuous war in Gaza all schools have been suspended, depriving children and youth of their right to education. In light of the ongoing challenges faced by the people of Gaza, addressing mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) needs is of utmost importance. The complex socio-political situation, compounded by recurrent conflicts and humanitarian crises, has significantly impacted the mental well-being of individuals, especially children and their caregivers. To effectively start to respond to these challenges, a conversation on a situational analysis of the MHPSS landscape is important to initiate by INEE as a global network.

Following the webinar on Protecting the Right to Education in Gaza organized by INEE in December 2023, this upcoming virtual event convenes multiple panelists involved in MHPSS. The webinar aims to foster a safe space to hold a conversation around the unprecedented MHPSS situation in Gaza and catalyze efforts to address the mental health and psychosocial needs of the population affected by the war. The webinar features local voices and representatives from UNRWA, UNICEF, the Education Cluster, Creative Associates International, among others. By engaging key stakeholders and facilitating dialogue, we hope to magnify voices, contribute to building collaborations, and emphasize on the importance of promoting the well-being of individuals in Gaza, especially children and youth.
