The Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health

Mental Health Inequality, and Disparity, in an Unequal World

About this event

This event has now expired

In this podcast Aisha provides insight into the global dearth in CAMH specialists, deficits in health training around the world, the impact that COVID has had in terms of global child mental health inequality; and how do these health disparities affect children and families.

We are joined by Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist Dr. Aisha Sanober Chachar, who is co-founder and Director of Synapse, Pakistan Neuroscience Institute. Aisha has a special interest in transcultural child and adolescent psychiatry.

Having worked as a clinician in Pakistan, and having had her clinical rotations as a trainee in Nigeria and the UK, Aisha sets the scene by talking us through her journey from academia, to not-for-profit, to mental health entrepreneurship.

Aisha talks us through, in her view, the difference between adult and child mental health in an unequal world, and how we can foster a more global approach to address disparities and inequalities within child and adolescent mental health.

Furthermore, Aisha also discusses what child and adolescent mental health professionals can do to highlight or alleviate health inequalities; as well as what parents, schools, and other stakeholders can do too.
