WACIT Bangladesh: Second day of thinking to the future 

The test was whether health care professionals could relate child mental health to their role, rather than try to change it. 

Their recommendations for improvements in practice speak volumes: “building relations with children, apply knowledge, give families more time, and increase team work with families’ involvement”.

So did their service recommendations: “more child-friendly environments, counselling corner for children, train fieldworkers for outreach follow-ups to increase access, and extend monthly mothers’ meeting to incorporate parenting work”.

Special thanks to a brilliant headmistress and co-facilitator! Everybody seemed to smile at the end – hmmm, quite everybody…
