Psychosocial support is best provided by families and communities. We can strengthen the ability of families and communities to provide love, care and protection for their children.

All services for children (for example: education, health, humanitarian support in emergencies) should be delivered in a way that takes account of their psychosocial wellbeing.

REPSSI (Regional Psychosocial Support Initiative) is the leading African psychosocial support organisation. REPSSI’s vision is that all girls, boys and youth have the right to enjoy psychosocial and mental wellbeing.
