8th IACAPAP Lunch & Learn Webinar | The Impact of Economic Crisis on Child and Adolescent Mental Health: A Global Call To Action
The global economic crisis is expected to produce secondary mental health effects that may increase the burden on children and their families. Common mental disorders such as depression and anxiety are associated with low educational level, resources disadvantage and unemployment. Despite this challenging scenario, the mental health effects of the economic crisis can be offset by social welfare and other policy measures. Health care professionals can also identify sub-groups that are more susceptible to develop mental health problems during a recession.

The economic crisis and its effect in child and adolescent mental health is a global call to action and we must advocate for implementation of evidence-supported practices that are scalable, expands access to care, and eliminates disparities worldwide.
