DELIVERING SUPPORT FOR CHILDREN TO NAVIGATE ADOLESCENCE WITH GREATER RESILIENCE
A pathfinding adolescent mental health project in China
In 2016, UNICEF joined forces with the National Health Commission to launch the ‘Adolescent Health and Development Project’ in 14 districts and counties of 11 provinces nationwide. The project focuses on preventative intervention to build adolescents’ awareness, knowledge and skills for better mental health and provide information on when and where they can access services. This project will reach over half a million adolescent girls and boys from more than 430 schools with a comprehensive mental health services package.
