Pastoral Care and Psychosocial Support
JRS recognizes that the most effective mental health and psychosocial supports are implemented through layered, complementary services capable of meeting a variety of complex experiences and needs.
Forced displacement can disrupt relationships and practices that foster resilience and healing in individuals, families, and communities. In the wake of such disruptions, displaced persons may require additional psychological and social support as they adapt to new, unexpected circumstances.
JRS recognizes that the most effective mental health and psychosocial supports are implemented through layered, complementary services capable of meeting a variety of complex experiences and needs. To this end, the psychosocial programs provided by JRS aim to strengthen community and family supports through emphasis placed on building hope, restoring human dignity, and strengthening social cohesion. JRS staff provide safe spaces and activities for vulnerable groups, case management services, individual and group counseling, and training and supervision of non-specialists recruited from the communities we serve. Much of JRS mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) is integrated into all JRS programs.
A cornerstone of the JRS mission is to offer holistic human services through companionship, warmth, and recognition of human dignity; through this mission and JRS’s lens of accompaniment we provide psychosocial support to those in need.
