Bringing up children in the contemporary sociocultural paradigm throws unique and perplexing challenges, unlike anything faced by previous generations. Add to this the present atmosphere of uncertainty and the lack of opportunity for formal socialization; it will not be an overstatement to say that the mental health of our children is at risk. In this scenario the purpose of education should not be limited to nurturing high aspiring students, but also to promote the mental health of vulnerable children. Parents and educators today can no longer remain confined within the contours of their conventional roles, and thus need to develop a conceptual view of the field of mental health and work towards understanding the intricacies of a child’s development. This course is designed to impart essential knowledge to understand the causes, and the signs and symptoms of mental health problems in children. The course also highlights active measures that can be undertaken to prevent mental health problems in children, along with the steps that need to be taken once a mental health problem is suspected.
