In this episode Amanda is joined by representatives of three member organisations who are working to support children’s mental health and wellbeing across three continents.

Omattie Madray, Managing Director of ChildLinK, in Guyana, Chaste Uwihoreye, Country Director at Uyisenga Ni Imanzi in Rwanda and Rita Panicker, Director of Butterflies, in India.

The panel discussed how mental wellbeing is a topic that must be addressed at community rather than an individual level and how typically western ideas around therapeutic approaches translate to different contexts.

This podcast builds on the research each organisation has been conducting as part of a practice exchange project. All three reports can be found here.

At Family for Every Child we know that Children who are emotionally well are more likely to develop strong and healthy minds, and to have better lives in the future. And it is this knowledge that underpins our Emotions Matter campaign.
