There are few human tragedies that stir sympathy and concern more deeply than to see the suffering of children from around the world; this can lead to spontaneous feelings and impulses of wanting to help. However, such impulses need to be harnessed in a productive manner. On a global scale, psychiatric disorders are among the most common of medical morbidity. We share in a global responsibility to transcend cultural and political boundaries to identify childhood-onset psychiatric illness as an international public health crisis that demands the attention and efforts of clinicians, families, stakeholders, and policy makers around the world.
What happens to children when their world is turned upside down? Their predicament is both overwhelming and inescapable. While many countries are beginning to focus more on mental health and allocating resources - far too many children and adolescents still face obstacles when seeking care from a child mental health professional. This presentation will identify the global challenges we face in children’s mental health, share successful psycho-social programs that have been developed, and how to face cultural and political challenges and ways to provide educational tools to those on the field.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counselors and other mental health professionals.
At the conclusion of this activity, attendees will be able to:
- Recognize, identify, and differentiate the developmental aspects to the way children and adolescents express their responses to trauma of any kind.
- Identify community and cultural factors that are important considerations for establishing mental health care for children and adolescents
- Identify mediating variables that can serve as protective factors in identifying youngsters who may be more vulnerable and experience more difficulties.
