Phase 2
Operationalization of the Guidelines through capacity building
   - Training of Trainers to all agencies active in emergencies (all sectors) on the use of the
       guidelines (not MHPSS skills); multi-tiered approach: (i) INGO & GO agencies for
       policy and planning; (ii) General Field staff in emergency settings; (iii) MHPS
       organization and service providers.
   - Supervision of implementation in acute emergencies

Phase 3
Coordination for before, during and after the case study
   - Long term coordination mechanisms for MHPS care in Nepal; Working Group can
       remain active beyond the Case Study to have a coordination mechanism in place for
       actual emergencies and for reference for broader mental health care development in
       Nepal
