• RESOLVE

  • 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.

  • AREAS WE WORK ON

    HOW INNOVATION AND TECH CAN BRING NEW CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS TO MENTAL HEALTH IN DISPLACEMENT

    SOCIAL INNOVATION

    Civic innovators are at the forefront of building social enterprises and businesses supporting independence, integration and well-being.

    MOBILE MENTAL HEALTH

     The ubitquitousness of mobile phones offers more expedient ways to disseminate knowledge and connect on mental health between practitioners and their patients, as well as building capacity on training for trainers.

    VIRTUAL REALITY

    VR is a new form of storytelling and making ground in PTSD treatment for veterans, but is yet to fully emerge to mediate severe forms of stress or trauma for resettled refugees.

    DIGITAL MAPPING

    IASC's 4W's (Where, When, Who and What) gives an indication of mental health work on the ground - we add Why and How broaden critical assessments on the use, need and scale of current work.

    ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE

    AI may pave a new pathway for engaging in digital psychosocial support that allows for privacy in the healing process for those living communities where stigma and shame are high.

    ARCHITECTURE

    Spaces, structures and places can compound depression and stress or help people thrive - linking architecture to the how we create safe spaces for mental health support.
