Children & Young People’s Mental Health

The IC 2022 will focus on the resilience of children and young people,
especially with regard to their mental health during the Covid-19 pandemic
(social distancing, school closures and other fundamental changes in
society), and during extreme crises such as the Russo-Ukrainian War (the
devastation and the massive displacement of children and young people
as a result); how can child helplines further strengthen children’s resilience,
and provide them with support to improve their situation in society?
