PPRP is a short term project funded by the Asia Foundation which aims to provide psychosocial support to the survivors of the recent earthquake in Nepal. It is being implemented in the Rasuwa, Ramechhap, Dolakha, Dhading, Nuwakot and Lalitpur districts of Nepal.
The project aims to reach its goal through the implementation of project activities such as providing individual and group counseling along with conducting group intervention which consist of community psychosocial support and community healing programs. Capacity building is also targeted through training the primary health workers such as auxiliary nurse midwives (ANMs) and health assistants (HAs) as well as female community health volunteers (FCHVs) and community psychosocial workers (CPSWs). To improve the linkage between the different sectors a coordination meeting regarding mental health issues and post disaster psychosocial responses will also be conducted with the district stakeholders. Audio-visual aid such as mobile phone applications are also being created to provide information to community members on psychosocial problems.
