Abstract

This paper desribes the evolution of child and adolescent mental health emergency services in Eastern European countries over the past decade since the dissolution of the Iron Curtain. The process of helping countries to organize services, as facilitated by the authors through their training and mentoring of Eastern European mental health professionals, organized by the Children's Mental Health Alliance Foundation, with funding from the Soros Foundation, is described. This paper is a prelude to reports from six Eastern European countries which describe in more detail how child and adolescent mental health emergencies are evaluated and treated locally.
