Psychosocial Support Activity Pack Deped

Psychosocial Support Activity Pack Deped

In the return to face-to-face classes, teachers and school personnel will be welcoming back children with diverse experiences of the effects of the pandemic. For some, prolonged isolation and interruption of social life may have caused high stress and psychological consequences. Others may have experienced violence and neglect.

Children coming from low-income families became most vulnerable to the economic consequences of the pandemic. Dealing with the diverse effects of the pandemic, teachers and school personnel must meet the children where they are, and support their health and wellbeing as they return to in-person classroom learning. An experience of crisis can put an individual temporarily out of balance. Therefore, restoration of normalcy through the return to school after a crisis is a phase that can play a crucial role in a child’s mental wellbeing.

In times of crises, the education community must come together to ensure learning continuity and protect the right of every child to education. The provision of mental health and psychosocial support services is essential to ensure that children can access opportunities for healing, and recovery. Hence, the Department of Education, through the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Service (DRRMS) together with MAGIS Creative Spaces, Inc., developed a Psychosocial Support Activity Pack, A Teacher's Guide (Kinder, Grades 1-3, and Senior High School) to use as a guide in conducting psychosocial support activities in the classroom.
