In order to contribute to, protect and reduce the negative impact of the current health crisis on the mental health and well-being of children, adolescents and their parents, in cooperation with UNICEF, with the support of USAID and relevant ministries, we continue education-training Virtual Crisis Intervention “Here & Now”.
So far, 75 experts in the field of health, social protection, education from Bosnia and Herzegovina have been included. The aim of the training is to empower experts in the application of Virtual Crisis Interventions, in providing support and treatment to children, adolescents and their parents in order to protect and mitigate the negative consequences of the health crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic, mental health and well-being.
Education-training enables the creation of a platform of multidisciplinary and intersectoral teams in BiH for providing virtual crisis interventions and treatments, now and in the future in crisis situations.
The aim of the platform is to strengthen the connection of professionals from different disciplines who meet children, young people and their parents in everyday professional environment, strengthen primary and secondary prevention systems, develop and adapt to new technologies and online services, communicate more effectively on the need for mental health care, exchange information, research, education of experts, coordination of available resources, and identification and provision of adequate protection and support to children at risk, monitoring and timely intervention.
