15th May, 2015 Prime Institute of Public Health (PIPH) in collaboration with Department of Pediatrics Peshawar Medical College (PMC) conducted the 3rd session of a series of trainings on child and adolescent mental health. A total of 20 teachers from different public and private sector schools of district Peshawar participated in the session.

Dr. Durdana Khan from PIPH delivered presentations on child & adolescent mental health and deep breathing techniques. A pre and post session test was also conducted followed by group discussion, case handling and discussion between the participating members.

The session was divided in two modules, the 1st module concentrated on child mental health. The goal was to raise awareness in teachers regarding the mental health related problems of school age children. To raise awareness in teachers about the stigma related to mental illnesses and ways to counteract that stigma as well as to introduce teachers to stress and anger management techniques. The teachers were also introduced to common child mental disorders and the associated warning signs.

The 2nd module of the session was directed at adolescent mental health, where the aim was to increase knowledge of the teachers regarding adolescent health issues. Teachers were briefed about violence in adolescents and the techniques to prevent it. The module also included information sharing on the harmful effects of tobacco use and its prevention. Self medication was another major issue that was discussed during the session. A survey conducted in 2007, showed that almost 76% of university level students in Karachi, self medicate them. Some of the worse side effects of self medication i.e. under & over dosage and drug addiction were also highlighted.

Another important aspect which was covered during the session was the role that the media is playing in effecting the health and mental behavior of children and adolescents. Teachers were also briefed about guidelines of TV and technology use.
