Girls are at increased risk due to unequal access to resources, decision-making power and education; gender-based violence; and discriminatory practices like child marriage. Few programs and policies have effectively addressed the mental health and well-being needs of adolescents, especially in low- and middle-income countries. Further, existing programs and policies rarely take gender into account or reach the most marginalized.
Join ICRW to discuss the intersection between gender and adolescent mental health.
