Humanitarian aid caters less than one percent to innovation. In a system unable to respond to crises at the scale, speed and proximity now experienced, bigger thinking is needed on how we communicate, coordinate and collaborate within the humanitarian field to address the growing need for mental health care in major displacement crises.
RESOLVE focuses on how technology and innovation can better connect people to mental health information along their different journeys to meet their needs in real time and how these resources can also help aid workers deal with challenges in reaching patients and providing care.
By bringing refugee communities, the private sector, and civil society experts together, RESOLVE seeks to identify how innovation and technology can help mitigate mental health outcomes and build resilience in communities experiencing high displacement.
