Time and Teddy Bears Can’t Treat Trauma
Close to 1 of every 6 children in the world struggles with mental health disorders but less than 1 penny of each dollar spent for global health funding is designated to support them.
It’s not enough. Children need more.
Time can’t treat trauma, and teddy bears don’t diagnose depression. But for millions of children living with debilitating mental health disorders, this is the only comfort they’ve got.
The Mental Health in International Development and Humanitarian Settings (MINDS) Act would prioritize psychosocial support in U.S. foreign aid for the first time ever and Save the Children Action Network is proud to support MINDS Act.
