In a world where you can be anything,
Psychosocial Initiative is a social enterprise that aims to promote and advance efforts and knowledge on psychosocial support; its importance and its principles.
Psychosocial is a term coined from the word psychology and social. Psychology refers to the study of cognition, emotion and behaviour while social refers to anything relating to human society and its interaction with one another.
Thus, in essence psychosocial refers to the interaction and intersection between a person’s psyche such as thoughts, emotions and behaviours in response to their social factors.
Refers to any non-therapeutic interventions that address a person’s emotional, mental and social capacity with the long-term objective to enhance, promote and strengthen resilience.
