Please join us for a virtual briefing on Thursday, October 27 at 11 AM ET to hear more about UNICEF’s work supporting children and their caregivers across the world with mental health.
The past few years have been tough on everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic, the climate accelerated emergencies, and now the economic instability hitting many parts of the world - all have shone a spotlight on declining mental health and well-being. Everything from physical distancing measures, restrictions on movement, school closures, confinement, and now spiraling food and living costs have adversely affected the health and wellbeing of millions.
While COVID, in particular, has interrupted so many child protection and family support systems - the pandemic recovery has also offered us a unique opportunity to rethink and build back better by investing in a comprehensive approach to mental health support that is fit for the future. We will visit UNICEF programs in Lebanon, Nepal and Jamaica and hear from our experts, youth advocates and community organizations on how UNICEF is working in partnership to support children and their families on mental health.
You’ll be able to learn more about how your support helps in this vital area of well-being and we can answer your questions and discuss opportunities for how we can also increase our cooperation.
