Mental health and psychosocial support in schools: Findings from NRC’s Better Learning Programme in Kenya

Mental health and psychosocial support in schools: Learner, teacher, caregiver and community perception of programming and impact. Findings from qualitative research featuring the Norwegian Refugee Council’s Better Learning Programme in Kakuma, Kenya.

Kenya has long been a host to refugees from neighbouring countries. Many refugees suffer from conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety. The need for MHPSS services for refugees in Kenya is notable, and information related to prevalence of mental health and behavioural problems is lacking. This research set out to examine the enabling environments for MHPSS interventions delivered in education settings in humanitarian contexts, with specific focus on NRC’s BLP implemented in Kenya.
