Child Behavioral Health in Sub-Saharan Africa

Join us in congratulating Fred M Ssewamala, Ozge Sensoy, Mary M McKay and other Brown faculty and researchers on their recent book. This book highlights the emerging research and policy development efforts to address child and adolescent behavioral health in Sub-Saharan Africa, where mental health policy is at an early stage and in need of context-specific attention to its successes and shortcomings. A diverse range of researchers, with expertise on relevant policy in both the region as a whole and country-specific contexts, including Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, and Uganda, outline theoretically informed, culturally appropriate, evidence-based, and youth- and family-focused service models.
