Integration of livelihood into MHPSS Program

Background:  Nepal suffered a 10-year-long political conflict also known as ‘People’s War’ or the ‘Nepalese Civil War’ (1996–2006). More than 18,000 people lost their lives, thousands more were injured or displaced, and many were victims of grave human rights violations. With the end of the civil war and the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Accord, several attempts have been made by the government of Nepal and various civil society organizations to reintegrate the survivors of torture/conflict into the society of origin. However, this still demands initiatives on reparation and justice, compensation to survivors and holistic support for rehabilitation.

Under this context, TPO Nepal has been supporting the survivors of human rights violations through promotion of their mental health and psychosocial well-being for several years since its establishment. More than 90% of survivors treated by TPO Nepal had serious issues of poverty, unemployment and livelihood. It has now been realized that sustainable impacts on the lives of those affected demands fulfillment of economic needs. Therefore, this project aims to implement a comprehensive modular intervention combining mental health and psychosocial support services together with livelihood activities.
