EXPRESSION OF INTEREST
FOR MENTAL HEALTH AND PSYCHOSOCIAL SUPPORT (MHPSS) REHABILITATION SERVICE PROVIDERS

BACKGROUND
Experiences associated with irregular migration through the Central Mediterranean route from Nigeria through North Africa to Europe often exert great mental strain on migrants. This route proves extremely dangerous as migrants often struggle to cope with stressors associated with the hazardous journey and return to their communities of origin, amidst limited resources, stripped off familiar social safety nets, and other deprivations, torture and human rights violations. Upon their return, returned migrants also face other challenges and stressful experiences which need to be addressed if their reintegration is to be sustainable. Incorporating Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) components into IOM activities is part of the integrated approach to ensure sustainable and comprehensive reintegration of returning migrants by ensuring their psychological needs are also met.

However, there is currently limited access to mental health and psycho-social support rehabilitation services in areas of high returns and this creates a challenge in reintegrating returnees in a sustainable manner.
