International Medical Corps is a global, humanitarian, nonprofit organization dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs.
Established in 1984 by volunteer doctors and nurses, International Medical Corps is a private, voluntary, nonpolitical, nonsectarian organization. Its mission is to improve the quality of life through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in underserved communities worldwide.
By offering training and health care to local populations and medical assistance to people at highest risk, and with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance
As part of a comprehensive program to provide critical support to refugees, asylum seekers, internally displaced persons and migrants in Libya, International Medical Corps will be providing primary health care and referral support for specialized treatment, improved hygiene and sanitary conditions and protection.
The Mental health and psycho-social support (MHPSS) Specialist will be responsible for supporting the integration of mental health into primary health care service delivery in the detention centers and urban settlements in line with WHO mhGAP Intervention Guidelines. International Medical Corps’ approach to mental health is heavily based in training and developing the capacity of national staff; the successful candidate should therefore have experience in training, on the job supervision and mentoring, coordination and in building referral links to the other formal service providers and informal community supports. The MHPSS Specialist will work towards building the capacity of MHPSS staff psychiatrists in particular providing them with training and supervision as per IMC models within the context of WHO and IASC guidelines. The MHPSS Specialist will work and coordinate with the Program Director and Medical Director very closely and will also work in collaboration with the HQ based IMC Senior MHPSS Advisor.
