ABOUT THIS PRESENTATION

This talk will focus on addressing the psychosocial support and mental health care needs of conflict affected children, especially in humanitarian settings. It will address how situations like conflict affect children and adolescents, and what we have learned so far in how we mitigate the negative impacts. I will provide an example of how research and practice come together in a program of work that aims to develop a multi-sectoral, multi-level system of care for children affected by war that addresses children’s needs across different ecological levels. This system of care is complemented by mechanisms to ensure access and quality of care, and a focus on ensuring evidence-based principles can be developed and implemented in such a way that they are scalable and can achieve actual real-world impact, despite the complexities and challenges of working in low-resource humanitarian settings.
