Thanks for connecting the threads, Elisabeth! 

Just to note, in addition to the compendium Columbia University and the IRC have also just published a new MHM rapid assessment tool (M-RAT). The M-RAT is used to evaluate the status & reach of MHM programming within an ongoing humanitarian emergency. It can help to identify strengths & areas for improvement, and to track progress over time!
