Supporting Mental Health in Children's Care - Part 2

Family for Every Child

This is the second in the series of three events focusing on mental health. Four Family for Every Child member organisations share their experiences and perspectives on supporting the mental health of vulnerable children, building on discussions from their last event:

  • Jennifer Cueva - CPTCSA (Philippines) - talks us through CPTCSA's interventions for sexually abused children below the age of 18 years, which includes CPTCSA's approach to healing through counselling and building interpersonal relations.
  • Angel Rojas Garzón & Leonardo Velazquez - JUCONI (Mexico) - share how JUCONI supports children with their emotional needs within their family contexts, creating safe spaces and building relationships.
  • Caryn Onions - The Mulberry Bush (UK) - shares how staff at their therapeutic school and children's home are trained to help children understand their feelings as the bedrock for good mental health.
  • Stella Duque - Taller de Vida (Colombia) - explains how art therapy and creative, participatory experiences can support good mental health.
