This fact-sheet provides general guidance to implement MHPSS remote interventions, aligned with the PAHO and WHO e-Health considerations. Considering physical distancing as the key public health measure to prevent COVID-19, new remote strategies are needed to ensure the continuity of treatment for mental health interventions. Remote modalities need specific adjustments for MHPSS, this document provides general guidance in this regard, in an easy and quick format to read.
