Stage 3: Proof of Concept
Social and Behavior Change
Social and Behavior ChangeSEE LESS
Over 72 weeks, this project will train teachers and parents of 5,000 children from disadvantaged homes in the Addis Ababa region in the prevention, early detection and management of mental and behavioural problems.
How does your innovation work?
Mental health services are virtually non-existent for Ethiopian children, up to 23% of whom have disorders. The aim is that parental and teacher training in these problems will lead to better emotional/behavioural, social and academic functioning in children, and relieving family stress. The project will collect information to help identify cases in need of referral and will create groups to support the generation of income by mothers.
