Mainstreaming Psychosocial Care and Support into Economic Strengthening Programmes
REPSSI is a regional non-governmental organisation working with partners to promote psychosocial support (PSS) and care for children affected by HIV and AIDS, poverty and conflict in East and Southern Africa.
REPSSI advocates that services, programmes and policies designed to support vulnerable communities should respond holistically to the needs and rights of communities and children. It is important that psychosocial care and support programmes are not only specialised, stand-alone programmes.
This guideline is aimed at practitioners working in or supporting economic strengthening programmes targeting vulnerable children and their caregivers and provides practical steps to mainstream psychosocial support into these programmes.
It is part of the REPPSI Psychosocial Wellbeing Series, through which REPSSI strives to publish high-quality, user-friendly, evidence-based manuals and guidelines, addressing psychosocial wellbeing issues.
