Implementation of Mental Health Care Package for Children in Areas of Armed Conflict
A Case Study from Burundi, Indonesia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Sudan
PLOS Medicine "A recent review demonstrated that mental health problems are a leading cause of health-related disability in children and adolescents worldwide. Even though children and adolescents constitute around 50% of the population in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), their mental health needs are generally neglected. This is especially the case in settings where children are surrounded by perpetual violence and poverty. Violence may impact mental health and broader aspects of psychological and social well-being. This situation requires an intervention response that is comprehensive, as well as affordable, effective, and feasible to scale up."
