Child & caregiver mental health: Using data to make progress

This policy brief explores the current state of knowledge on the mental health of children and their caregivers. It looks at three factors – the determinants of mental health, factors shaping the demand and need for mental health care, and factors shaping the strength of mental health systems – and makes recommendations about the need for new perspectives, investments and monitoring.

The brief marks the launch of Countdown 2030, a new dashboard developed to fill gaps in knowledge about global mental health.
