Evaluation of Psychosocial Support Programs Implemented After VAN ERCİŞ Earthquake 2015

The 2011 Van-Erciş earthquakes and their catastrophic repercussions activated and mobilized numerous national and international institutions. The Ministry of Family and Social Policies (MoFSP), who holds the main responsibility for psychosocial support, implemented several intervention programs in collaboration with UNICEF in order to enable survivors of the earthquake to return, to a certain degree, to their normal lives. The report aims to objectively appraise the achievements of the psychosocial programs applied as well as the difficulties experienced during the process. In this study, suggested solutions are presented to inform psychosocial programs to be implemented in the future and to prevent the problems that were faced from recurring.
