or the non-pharmacological (not using drugs) management of mental disorders. Moreover, it was designed to span sectors and areas of operation across UNHCR, rather than focusing only on Health and Community Services activities. As is the case with the 4Ws mapping activity, the survey was not able to capture the quality of the activity, and, moreover, the extent to which the activity is understood by staff as a MHPSS activity and is guided by MHPSS principles. It is important to note that this form of mapping does not address reasons why certain activities may not be present – in some cases, this may be due to a gap in programming, whereas in other cases this may be due to the context – for example, that UNHCR does not work in the shelter sector, or that educational activities are primarily provided through the Government. Moreover, lack of a reported activity from a certain country does not indicate that this activity does not exist in the country, but that respondents who completed the survey did not report these activities. 37 A Global Review

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
