JRS MHPSS Teacher Training Modules
The Jesuit Refugee Service Teacher Training Modules on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) prepares teachers to respond to the mental health and psychosocial needs of their students, colleagues, and themselves. The modules reference best practices and guidance from the Interagency Network for Education in Emergencies (INEE), Interagency Standing Committee (IASC) MHPSS Reference Group, World Health Organization and other reputable sources. This 44-page document includes five 3-hour teacher training modules. Module 5 focuses on "Teacher Wellbeing." The resource was coincidentally made around the onset of COVID-19 but it addresses the larger need to support the psychosocial wellbeing of students, teachers, and the entire community, particularly in refugee settlements or other setting affected by protracted displacement.
