A Kenyan case study: implementation of the IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings

By Rebecca Horn and Alison Strang

Abstract

This case study describes the use of the IASC Guidelines on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Kenya. The fieldwork was carried out 14–25 July 2008, and involved discussions with representatives of humanitarian organisations, UN agencies and government departments in Nairobi, Eldoret and Nakuru. It describes the ways in which the guidelines have been disseminated in Kenya, how they have ‘added value’ in that context, as well as the factors that have hindered the full implementation of the guidelines in Kenya
