Promoting Early Detection of Mental Health Problems

The main goal of the project is to reduce the risk of onset of disabilities in Algeria.

Early Detection of Mental Health Problems Project

The project plans to continue the awareness raising and training of groups of medical professionals using a multidisciplinary approach: linking gynecology and obstetrics, monitoring premature children and screening clinically for mental disorders.

For example, links between disorder screening of newborn babies and prevention will be strengthened by new refresher sessions to update skills and share practices. This will make it possible to work more directly on understanding and effectively implementing best practices.

Throughout this project, a pilot project for a department for the screening and early treatment of childhood disorders will be carried out and proposed for approval by the Ministry of Health. This will be a first for Algeria.
