General objective of the project:

Improved mental health services

Project summary:

Conduct disorders are the most common reason for referral of children to the professional services in the field of mental health and represent an increasing and a long-term financial burden for society. Consistent evidence exists which prove that disorders can be prevented and treated if one intervenes early. This project introduces an evidence-based programme for prevention and early intervention of conduct problems through parenting training. In a pilot project, parental trainings will be offered to 300 parents of children from 3-8 years in five Slovenian regions. With the help of the Norwegian project partners we will train a team of at least 20 professionals to implementat the programme in 10 centres nationwide. These will come from three different agencies: children's mental health, social services and local authorities. The target groups that will benefit from the project are children with conduct disorders and their parents, experts in the field of mental health and the community. The experience from the project will be used to plan the future implementation of similar programmes in Slovenia.
