Child Mental Healthcare in Low Resource Setting (Cohort 2)

"Child Mental Health Care Delivery in Low Resource Settings: Global Perspectives" presents a conceptual basis for whether and how research on global mental health delivery is translated into practice and policy for child and adolescent mental health. Core principles of global mental health care delivery are presented in the context of topic areas that include Systems of Care, Humanitarian Crisis Response, Task Sharing, and Prevention and Early Child Development. The concepts are presented within the context of case study approaches to build comprehensive, collaborative, community-based systems of care for youth mental health. The course is supported by presentation of case studies demonstrating how evidence-based interventions for prevention and treatment of mental health problems can be delivered in real-world settings in a variety of global contexts.
