Toolkit for Community Psychosocial Support Workers

Toolkit for Community Psychosocial Support Workers

The Toolkit for Community Psychosocial Support (PSS) Workers is a compilation of tools for delivering services to children and adults in Sierra Leone.

The Toolkit takes into account IASC Guidelines and provides a range of resources that have been validated in Sierra Leone. Grounded in the Sierra Leonean context and drawn from all regions of the country, the Toolkit is not limited to the care of Ebola survivors and their families; the tools and skills provided are meant to be used if other crises arise in Sierra Leone, as well as for other projects seeking to promote the psychosocial wellbeing of people and their communities.
 
Accompanying the Toolkit is an Information Guide for Community PSS Workers, providing information that will enable PSS workers to understand the technical sections of the Toolkit in more detail.
