Organisational Support

Organisations, managers and individuals all have different roles and responsibilities when it comes to supporting staff and managing psychosocial risk.

On this page you will find links to useful resources and services offered by Mandala Staff Support which are targeted at the organisational level – that is, the kinds of overarching systems, policies and funding allowances that need to be in place to enable effective psychosocial staff care and support across the cycle of a typical aid deployment.
