Literature Review: The Emotional Harm and Well-being of Children

The variety of ways in which children’s emotional and mental health problems are defined raises several issues for the policy and provision of services
aimed at intervention and prevention. Agencies working in this area need to develop a consensus regarding definitions and thresholds to enable interdisciplinary communication and the development of co-ordinated policy and strategy for intervening to enhance children’s emotional well-being and
reduce emotional harm.
