Here is an overview of the Agenda for the 10th International Consultation of Child Helplines.
Day 1 - Tuesday 27 September
Opening speeches and formal welcome to all guests.
Thematic Plenary Session #1
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?

Thematic Plenary Session #2:
Resilience: The role of child helplines during times of crisis
The IC 2022 will also look at the resilience of our Child Helpline Members,

crises such as the Russo-Ukrainian War and other conflicts, and the
significant impacts on how child protection services have been able to
operate as a result of these events.
