Follow the money: Global funding of child and family MHPSS activities in development and humanitarian assistance
Findings from a study conducted by the MHPSS Collaborative of ODA and private development finance for the years 2018-2019 reveal that, despite small increases, child and family
mental health and psychosocial support (child and family MHPSS) remains severely underfunded.
Even with small increases in funding over the past years, the small fraction of funding for child and family MHPSS is woefully insufficient to offset the high demand for mental health and psychosocial services across the globe. The reality in 2019 is that only 0,31% of ODA funding and 1.0% of private sector funding went to child and family MHPSS.
