Christian Answers to Global Child and Adolescent Mental Health

In Person

Addressing child mental health needs across cultures

  • Breakout Session
  • Main Building ATCR 200/202
  • November 8 2024 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

In this breakout session, we will explore cultural aspects of child mental health across the globe. How helpful are our “western” diagnoses for children and adolescents in the Global South? Does autism, trauma, depression, etc. look the same across cultures? Are our therapeutic approaches relevant and sustainable? How do we build the capacity of local providers and encourage Christians to provide care and address stigma?
