UCMS Platform for MHPSS of UNICEF LACRO

Riseup Labs is developing a Unified Content Management System (UCMS) for Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) of UNICEF LACRO. It can connect to the RapidPro and IoGT also. The platform manages other Session Border Controller (SBC)-related content and facilitates adaptation to communication platforms. UNICEF LACRO can manage the platform's contents centrally from this UCMS.

Through this project, UNICEF will receive this centralized platform from Riseup Labs, where they can perform necessary management and editing tasks for RapidPro and the Internet of Good Things (IoGT).

What is the UCMS Platform for MHPSS?

UCMS Platform for MHPSS is a Unified Content Management System of UNICEF LACRO. There is a fundamental imbalance in the supply and demand of quality mental health care for children and adolescents across Latin America and the Caribbean. The mental health treatment gap remains a public health concern as many children, including those from indigenous communities, with serious mental illnesses remain untreated.

So, UNICEF LACRO wanted to advance MHPSS services through digital platforms in the region. It helps create and promote a thematic library of open-access MHPSS digital public goods for children and adolescents. This platform has content, software, and technical guidance developed by and for the Latin America and the Caribbean context.

Problems faced by UNICEF LACRO

UNICEF LACRO wanted to develop a digital platform to advance MHPSS services in Latin America and the Caribbean region. Their objective was to apply a "learning by doing" approach to children, adolescents and their caregivers while using local knowledge and on-the-ground implementation experience across LACRO.
They want to develop packages of MHPSS digital public goods and standardized measurement tools to strengthen responses to the mental health needs of children and adolescents in the region. But they were facing problems in developing the UCMS Platform.

So UNICEF LACRO was looking for a consultant to help create and promote a thematic library of open-access MHPSS digital public goods for children and adolescents. It includes the packages of content, software, and technical guidance developed by and for the LACR context.

Finally, they found Riseup Labs, who is specialized in software development, to assist the consultant in all aspects regarding the analysis, design, development, testing and deployment of the following:

  • Web System
  • Front end Development
  • Back end Development
  • CMS Database Development

 

Moreover, Riseup Labs has already developed several Mobile apps, Web Systems, eLearning Platforms, etc., for UNICEF. So they trusted Riseup Labs to develop the UCMS Platform for MHPSS also.
