Armenia – Mental Health and Psychosocial Support Consultant

Country / Region: Armenia
Start date: 19 th of April 2021
Duration: 7,5 months
Source of funding: CDCS


Following the conflict escalation in Nagorno-Karabakh at the end of September 2020, PUI decided in October to organize a first exploratory mission in order to meet state authorities and humanitarian actors in Armenia, and thus evaluate the support that the organization would bring to this response.

In light of the fast evolution of the context and the ceasefire signed between Armenia and Azerbaijan, PUI decided to organize a second needs-assessment in Armenia, focusing on MHPSS which was identified as a need during the first exploration mission.

PUI launched its first MHPSS project and humanitarian mission in Armenia on the 1st of March.
