Fragility, tension and violence persist in Myanmar, where natural disasters complicate challenging conditions. Nearly a million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, including 244,000 in camps or camp-like situations. UNFPA supports the integration of mental health and psychosocial support (MHPSS) in the national health system, institutional capacity development and technical leadership to establish minimum standards. The MHPSS Peer Support Network has improved skills and supported humanitarian workers. Some 20,000 people received psychosocial support and nearly 5,000 attended MHPSS facilitation sessions.
