1st June, 2015 According to the Pakistan Demographic and Health Survey 2012-13, around 40 percent of the Pakistani population is under the age of 18 years. This age group is prone to a number of mental health disorders as it being a subject of low public health priority.

To address and raise awareness regarding this issue, the fourth event of the teachers training on Child and Adolescent Mental Health series was organized by Prime Institute of Public Health (PIPH) in collaboration with the department of pediatrics Peshawar Medical College (PMC), on 28th May 2015. The event was chaired by Dr. Saima Ali, Professor Department of Pediatrics (PMC). Teachers from different Public and Private schools were part of the training.

The aim of adolescent mental health project is to contribute towards the improvement of mental health by capacity building of teachers serving in middle and high schools, as teachers are usually among the very first people to observe that a child or adolescent is encountering a problem.

To enable teachers in understanding different mental health issues and how to address or prevent those, a detailed presentation on common mental health problems was delivered. The presentation addressed major mental health related issues, the associated warning signs, role of teachers in identification of mental illness, stress and anger management, conflict resolution and exercises on breathing techniques.

The presentation also highlighted the harmful effects of tobacco use as well as its prevention. While the dangerous side effects of self-medication were also discussed during the session. It was accentuated that the main cause of self-medication was ease of access to medicines, like the availability of medicines to adolescents through pharmacies without any proper prescription.

This was followed by a group activity, which involved solving two case studies and discussions between fellow members. At the end of the activity Dr. Saima Ali distributed certificates among the participants.
