ECAP Journal, December issue:  "Carefully consider the risk factors", editorial by Paul G. Ramchandani (Imperial College London, UK)

ECAP Journal, December issue:  "Carefully consider the risk factors", editorial by Paul G. Ramchandani (Imperial College London, UK) | ESCAP child and adolescent psychiatry | Scoop.it

In his editorial for the new issue of ECAP, Paul G. Ramchandani (Imperial College London, UK) overviews the broader concern for the mental health of children and adolescents across the globe. Referring to the papers in this December issue of the official ESCAP journal, Ramchandani touches the young refugee crisis in Europe, and:

  • The blurred boundaries between perinatal psychiatry and early child psychiatry.
  • Risks for mental illness in children and adolescents (biological, famil, school and the wider environment, societal violence, maltreatment, poverty and inequality).
  • Child labour in low- and middle-income countries and the increased risk of internalising problems and, for younger children, the risk of psychopathology.

Ramchandani urges to carefully consider the factors which can have a detrimental effect on children's mental health, "if we are aiming to reduce the burden of child and adolescent mental illness in the years ahead.”
