The guidelines begin with an overview of the determinants of mental health among children and adolescents before reviewing related South African policies and legislation. The document then discusses strategies to build skills among caregivers, teachers and other frontline providers of mental health interventions as well as those for counselling professionals. The guidelines conclude by identifying priority areas for mental health services among children and adolescents, including the prevention of child and substance abuse as well as services for those living with intellectual disabilities

Field Action Guide for Psychosocial Assessment of Children and Families in Emergencies

Regional Emergency Psychosocial Support Network & UNICEF EAPRO, (2005)


This field action guide focuses on the first psychosocial assessment to be conducted just after a calamity strikes or just after a major event in an ongoing armed conflict. While it is necessary to update that initial assessment as the emergency situation evolves through the different phases of recovery (briefly outlined in the “phase chart”), this mini book is meant to guide the formation of a team to assess the psychosocial as well as physical needs of children, their families and the communities and then the recommendations the team makes for ensuing support.

Mapping Children on the Move

African Committee of Experts on the Rights and Welfare of the Children ACERWC , Eds.: GIZ; Save the Children; EU, (2018)


In reviewing State Parties report on the implementation of the Charter, the Committee has identified children on the move as an emerging child protection issue in African, and therefore commissioned a study in view of making recommendations to tackle the problem in Member States. The Committee observed that there were challenges with regard to upholding the rights and welfare of children on the move and that there are gaps on the type of protection measures and treatment that is be accorded to such children within our beloved Continent. The study presents key drivers of the children on the move, migration routes, challenges faced by children on the move, policy and institutionalized content protecting children on the move and finally the way forward.

Situation of child and adolescent health in Europe (2018)

World Health Organization WHO; Regional Office for Europe, (2018)


The report focuses on several key areas where health outcomes are falling short, and provides insight into ways in which countries can improve the situation for their children and adolescents. Areas in focus include mental health, overweight/obesity and adolescent risk-taking behaviour. The report shows, for example, that: - mental health remains a neglected subject – only one quarter of countries are collecting data on the number of children treated by a mental health professional; - half of countries do not regulate the marketing of food to children, despite the fact that childhood obesity rates are high across the Region and physical activity rates are low; - almost half of countries have no policy that affects the availability of unhealthy foods at school; - 2 in 5 girls and 1 in 3 boys who are having sex do not protect themselves; and one third of countries do not offer legal access to contraception without parental consent for those under 18 years of age.

Ending Child Marriage in India

UN Children's Fund UNICEF, (2007)


India has the largest number of child brides in the world — one third of the global total.1 Yet, recent data indicates that in the last decade there has been a significant decline in the prevalence of child marriage from 47 per cent to 27 per cent of the proportion of women aged 20-24 years who were married before age 18 from 2005/2006 to 2015/2016.2 Child marriage among young men and boys has also seen a positive change. National and state averages, however, mask realities at the district level, and despite the overall decline, a few districts continue to have very high rates of child marriage. (Child marriage rates among women in a few districts of Rajasthan and Bihar, continue to be in the range of 47 per cent to 51 per cent).
