Programme Specialist - P4

Thailand, Bangkok, Bangkok - UNICEF

UNICEF works in some of the world's toughest places, to reach the world's most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.   Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.   And we never give up.   For every child, Protection    Child and adolescents' mental health and well-being, growing incidences of self-harm, and high suicide rates are of increasing concern in East Asia and the Pacific. The drivers and associated risk factors of mental health issues in children and adolescents are varied and complex including, amongst others, physical, sexual and emotional violence, socio economic conditions, discrimination and exclusion, gender norms, being parents themselves, being in humanitarian and fragile settings, as well as a lack of access to quality support and services. Failing to address mental health issues amongst children and adolescents can impact their physical and mental health throughout adulthood.   However, mental health promotion and the continuum of MHPSS service provision are not well developed in the region. Many countries do not have qualified mental health professionals, and where such services exist, the reach is limited and often not tailored to the specific needs children and adolescents nor the way in which under-18s prefer to seek and receive such services. Compounded by stigma surrounding mental health issues, most children and adolescents suffer in silence.   Mental Health and Psychosocial Support (MHPSS) is recognized as a cross cutting issue for sectors addressing health, social welfare and child protection, early childhood development, education, adolescent development and participation, communications for development, gender, and disability. It is also recognized that the delivery of a multi-tiered system for children and adolescent requires the engagement of a number of sectors including, but not limited to, education, social welfare and health.   How can you make a difference?   To contribute to this effort, UNICEF East Asia and the Pacific Regional Office (EAPRO) is seeking to hire a Programme Specialist who will coordinate the development and management of the regional MHPSS programme.
