Below is an overview of resources to help children, families, and health care providers across the world who are working to support children and families who are experiencing fear, threat, loss of loved ones, and displacement.

The resources contain a large amount of information on how to support the mental, physical, and behavioral health of refugees during both this acute phase and in the long term, guidelines regarding assessment and support for complex psychological factors impacting the wellbeing of families affected by the war, and strategies to assist health care staff through education and training. The list is organized by language with sub-headings by resource type.

Resources have been compiled by EPPN in collaboration with providers across institutions, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the National Institutes of Health and the Spanish Society of Psychology. Thanks to everyone for contributing to this resource list. If you are aware of any resources that would be useful to add, please contact us at
