Effective practices in education, mental health and psychosocial support for the integration of refugee children

Education, mental wellbeing and belonging are essential for children’s development. Refugees and asylum seekers are no exception. For them, even more is at stake: their chance to become integrated into their new country and community.

The REFUGE-ED project links two disciplines: Education and MHPSS to provide tools for better education, wellbeing and social belonging.

It is a three-year long project, which started in January 2021.

The consortium includes academic institutions, research centres, and non-governmental organisations from seven European countries.

The MHPSS Collaborative participated with expertise in MHPSS and the mainstreaming of MHPSS into education practices. The MHPSS Collaborative is also leading the communications and dissemination work of the project.
