Agenda

Final Conference: EU project 'FACT FOR MINORS - Fostering Alternative Care for Troubled Minors'

Conference

Date

Wednesday 27th of June 2018

Description

The EU project ‘FACT FOR MINORS – Fostering Alternative Care for Troubled Minors’, coordinated by the Italian Coordination of Care Communities (CNCA), intends to address children with psychological, psychiatric or personality disorders, hosted by alternative care communities (or socio-educational communities) as a consequence of penal measures.

Research interests in mental health problems in juvenile justice have grown over the past years, as several studies throughout the world have shown that mental disorders are highly prevalent among children under penal measures. This represents a significant problem, even more so if the special needs of these children remain unidentified and unaddressed, with significant long-term effects on their life chances and on their physical and mental health and well-being.

The conference will be the opportunity to present the outcomes of this transnational project, and to bring together juvenile justice and healthcare professionals, as well as representatives of European institutions. Attendance to the event is free, but the places available are limited.
