    The Women Rise Psychosocial Support Framework and Toolkit

    In this episode we talk with Sadia Dahir, Maimuna Mohammed, and Rose Poni about the recently released Women Rise Psychosocial Support Framework and Toolkit. Funded by USAID’s Bureau of Humanitarian Affairs, the Women Rise Toolkit seeks to address a critical gap in technical guidance for GBV service providers implementing MHPSS programming.

    This toolkit provides thorough guidance on group psychosocial support for GBV service providers with a specific focus on intersectional feminist approaches to care. It's centered on providing all the necessary guidance on GBV Psychosocial Support service provision, including a full PSS intervention (Women Rise) complete with a curriculum, tools, and training to support GBV service providers to implement safe, accessible, and transformative group psychosocial interventions for women in Women and Girls’ Safe Spaces.
