Supporting Mental Wellbeing in Children, Families and Communities - Approaches from Three Continents

Family for Every Child

In this episode Amanda Griffith of Family for Every Child is joined by representatives of three member organisations who are working to support children's mental health and wellbeing across three continents.

Omattie Madray, Managing Director of ChildLinK, in Guyana, Chaste Uwihoreye, Country Director at Uyisenga Ni Imanzi in Rwanda and Rita Panicker, Director of Butterflies, in India.

The panel discussed how mental wellbeing is a topic that must be addressed at community rather than an individual level and how typically western ideas around therapeutic approaches translate to different contexts.

This podcast builds on the research each organisation has been conducting as part of a practice exchange project. Access a report from each organization below.
