Mental Health Intervention for Children and Young People in Africa: Importance of psychosocial treatments
Effective treatments for children and young people with mental health difficulties require multimodal approaches informed by ecological/social, psychological, and biological approaches. Within these models, medical interventions are sometimes essential components of treatment packages such as for psychosis, bipolar illness, and ADHD. However, psychological and socio-environmental approaches are equally crucial in their own rights and in synergy with medical approaches. In recognition of the latter point, this presentation will explore effective psychosocial interventions for children and adolescents with mental health difficulties with emphasis on Low and Middle Income Countries.
