The MHPSS Learning Collaborative

The MHPSS Knowledge Hub is managed and maintained by the Implementation Science Collaborative (ISC)’s Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) Learning Collaborative (LC).

What is the Implementation Science Collaborative?

The Implementation Science Collaborative (ISC) is the output of USAID’s Health Evaluation and Applied Research Development (HEARD) project. The ISC champions and facilitates the use of data to improve health interventions, practices, programs, and policies in low and middle-income countries.

Partners in the ISC are committed to strategically involving diverse implementers, advocates, policy makers, researchers and donors, driving sustainable change to protect and empower some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.  Learn more about the ISC here.

What is the MHPSS Learning Collaborative?

The ISC supports the MHPSS Learning Collaborative (LC), a global network of stakeholders working to enhance evidence-informed implementation of MHPSS solutions in low-resource settings. The network seeks to foster joint learning, accelerate data liberation, and advance evidence advocacy and uptake of community-level MHPSS interventions via the following core activities: 

Cross-Site Learning and Knowledge Exchange

through quarterly network convenings with practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and donors to solve implementation challenges and ideate programmatic and research strategies

Knowledge Generation

through the implementation and evaluation of community-based, adaptation-oriented, implementation-science focused MHPSS interventions


of research evidence through cross-study publications, the ISC MHPSS webinar series, the MHPSS Knowledge Hub and Intervention Database, and other evidence-to-use products

Engagement and Partnerships

that increase diversity in collaborations and promote network growth among MHPSS and implementation science professionals
